U.S. Surpasses 90K COVID Deaths
US SURPASSES 90,000 CORONAVIRUS DEATHS AND 1.5 MILLION CASES
(CNN) – In 102 days, more than 90,000 people in the U.S. have died from coronavirus.
That’s the latest update Monday from Johns Hopkins University’s tally of cases here.
The first known U.S. coronavirus-related fatality was February 6th.
Since then, tens of thousands have died and there have been at least 1.5 million cases.
This as state after state relaxes rules.
But as of Monday, experts say only 18 states showed a downward trend of new cases. On Friday it was 28.
It’s not clear if the increase in cases is because of more testing or if the virus is just spreading more now that so many places are back open.
Either way, some governors say they’re willing to change course if things gets much worse.
In the meantime, a lot of people are putting their hope in a vaccine.
With one company even saying Monday it made a milestone in its progress, but they say there’s still a lot of work to be done.
