According to the Johns Hopkins University coronavirus tracker, the United States this past Sunday reached a grave milestone as the statistics indicated that the country passed 5 million confirmed cases of COVID-19. Additionally, the US still, unfortunately, holds the record for most COVID-19 deaths with 162,938 at the time of writing this.

The United States is also leading the world in confirmed cases of the virus with now just over 5 million, Brazil is following behind the US with 3 million, India with 2.2 million, Russia with 890,00, South Africa with 560,000, and Mexico with 480,000. The news of the US hitting over 5 million confirmed cases comes as global coronavirus cases breach the 20 million mark.

Judging from the daily cases graph on the JHS coronavirus tracker, we can see that globally we have been averaging around 200,000 new cases every day for quite some time now. At the time of writing this, there are 19,869,127 cases, which means that by tomorrow wherever you are in the world, global case count will have already reached over 20 million.
