1 in 10 Americans Have Had COVID: Report

About one in 10 Americans have had a confirmed coronavirus infection since the start of the pandemic, according to Johns Hopkins University data.

Of the United States’ population of 331 million people, roughly 33.2 million have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the potentially deadly respiratory disease caused by the novel coronavirus, according to Johns Hopkins.

That figure only represents known cases, however, and the true number of infections is likely much higher, said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which estimates that about 115 million Americans — or one out of every three people — have actually had the virus from the pandemic’s outset through mid-April, CNN reported.

The tracker reported official case rates are the highest in North Dakota, Rhode Island and South Dakota, with more than 14% of the population infected in each state, CNN reported. The lowest infection rates were in Hawaii, Vermont and Oregon, with each state having reported cases for less than 5% of the population.

The U.S.’s 33.2 million cases and 593,000 virus-related deaths are both tops globally, according to the Johns Hopkins tracker.
