Texas Becomes First U.S. State to Hit 1M Coronavirus Cases

Texas has become the first state to hit one million coronavirus cases.

The state has recorded 1,010,364 infections since the outset of the pandemic in the spring, CNN reported Wednesday, citing a Johns Hopkins University tracker.

By comparison, Italy, which has a population roughly twice the size of Texas’ and was one of the early hot spots of the pandemic, has 1,028,424 recorded cases over the same period.

As of Wednesday, 19,337 people have died in Texas, according to the tracker.

The U.S. leads the world in both coronavirus cases (roughly 10.3 million) and related deaths (more than 240,000), according to the Johns Hopkins tracker.
