210 New Coronavirus Cases, 23 More Deaths Reported In Massachusetts

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Another 210 cases of COVID-19 have been reported by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

The DPH also attributed an additional 23 deaths to the virus. That brings the state's total number of cases to 109,838, and the total number of COVID-related deaths to 8,172.

According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, it took the U.S. less than 100 days to confirm the first one million cases of COVID-19. Less than 45 days later, on June 10th, the nation surpassed two million confirmed cases.

24 days since hitting two million cases, the CDC is reporting more than 2.8 million cases of COVID-19, and close to 130,000 Americans have died from the virus.

The United States has by far the most confirmed cases of coronavirus in the world, with nearly double the number of cases reported by the next most highly-infected country, Brazil.

As Johns Hopkins University reports, the countries with the highest numbers of COVID-29 cases are:

1) United States with 2,818,588 cases

2) Brazil with 1,539,081 cases

3) Russia with 673,564 cases

4) India with 648,315 cases

5) Peru with 295,599 cases

6) Chile with 288,089 cases

7) United Kingdom with 286,412 cases

8) Spain with 250,545 cases

9) Mexico with 245,251 cases

10) Italy with 241,419 cases

While several of Massachusetts' coronavirus health metrics have been declining over the past month, dozens of other states have seen recent spikes in both cases and deaths.

On Independence Day, Florida shattered its single-day case record with nearly 11,500 new cases of coronavirus reported.
