The United States passed another milestone as the coronavirus pandemic continues to grow.
There have been more than 100,000 domestic cases of the flu-like virus as of Friday afternoon, according to the Johns Hopkins University’s tracker. The number comes a day after the country overtook China and Italy in the number of infections. The news also comes the same day as President Trump signed emergency relief legislation designed to assist the millions of people whose jobs are being affected by the pandemic, which has resulted in some states shutting down all nonessential businesses and ordering residents to shelter in their homes.
As of Friday afternoon, there have been more than 1,500 deaths from COVID-19 in addition to the infections. Worldwide, there have been more than 590,000 infections, 130,000 recoveries, and almost 27,000 deaths. READ MORE
