U.S. Approaches Two Million Coronavirus Cases

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Massachusetts Department of Public Health has reported another 304 cases of coronavirus, bringing the state's total number of cases to 103,436.

An additional 27 deaths were also attributed to the virus on Sunday, upping the COVID-related death toll in Massachusetts to 7,316.

According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. recorded its first coronavirus case on January 21st.

It took just over three months for the U.S. hit one million cases on April 29th.

Now, around five weeks since the nation passed that million case mark, the CDC said the U.S. is closing in on two million cases, and nearly 110,000 deaths.

That also means the U.S. has nearly one-third of the global coronavirus cases.

According to the CDC, while Massachusetts is the state with the 5th highest number of coronavirus cases, it has the 3rd highest number of COVID-related deaths, behind only New York and New Jersey.
