Global confirmed COVID-19 cases top 800,000: Johns Hopkins University

US coronavirus death toll passes 3,000 Johns Hopkins University

Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University have reported in its map that the United States has taken the grim title of the country with the most coronavirus infections.

That figure has risen by almost 2,000 since Tuesday evening.

The number of deaths from coronavirus has surpassed 5,000 in the United States after more than 1,000 died nationwide on Wednesday alone. US cases now represent about 25 percent of all cases across the globe.

As of Tuesday evening, Johns Hopkins reported 3,899 deaths lined to COVID-19 across the country - about 700 more than the 3,309 deaths reported in China.

President Donald Trump, who earlier had downplayed the pandemic's impact on the United States, said Wednesday that "we're going to have a couple of weeks, starting pretty much now, but especially a few days from now, that are going to be horrific".

"This is a number that we can anticipate, but not accept that it is inevitable", Dr. Anthony Fauci, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said Tuesday.

New York City is the current epicenter of the US coronavirus outbreak, where there have been more than 1,900 confirmed deaths.

The portion of the country hardest hit by the coronavirus continues to be New York City, where more than 43,000 people have contracted the disease.

According to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, the demand for hospital beds in NY already far exceeds supply.

The organization also projects that NY is still eight days away from reaching the peak of maximum resource demand.
