US hits five million COVID-19 cases

Figures released by John Hopkins University on Sunday shows the United States registering over five million cases in the coronavirus pandemic.

The US tally reached 5,000,603 cases on Sunday morning and 162,441 deaths — both totals by far the highest of any country in the world.

Reacting to the figure, Democrat opponent Joe Biden tweeted that the number boggles the mind and breaks the heart. He said each time the number goes up, it represents a life altered, a family stricken with anxiety, a community on edge concluding that it shouldn’t have gotten this bad.
