According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 30.2 million cases have been reported in the U.S., with more than 549,300 deaths reported from the virus.

Worldwide, more than 127 million people have been confirmed infected and more than 2.78 million have died. More than 72 million have recovered, according to Johns Hopkins University. The true numbers are certainly much higher, because of limited testing, different ways nations count the dead and deliberate under-reporting by some governments.
