Washington: The United States started 2021 the way it ended 2020 – setting new records amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
The country passed the 20 million mark for coronavirus cases on Friday, setting the mark sometime around noon, according to Johns Hopkins University’s COVID-19 tracker. The total is nearly twice as many as the next worst country – India, which has 10.28 million cases.
Along with the case county, more than 346,000 Americans have now died of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. That is 77% more fatalities than Brazil, which ranks second globally with 194,949 deaths.
More than 125,370 coronavirus patients were hospitalized on Thursday, the fourth record-setting day in a row, according to the COVID Tracking Project.
Going by official tallies, it took 292 days for the US to reach its first 10 million cases, and just 54 more days to double it, CNN reported.
Meanwhile, 12.41 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been distributed in the U.S. as of Wednesday, according to the CDC. Yet only 2.8 million people have received the first of a two-shot regimen.
