U.S. Now Has Over 550K COVID Deaths, 30M Cases

The United States now has more than 550,000 coronavirus-related deaths and 30 million overall cases, even as vaccination efforts ramp up nationwide.

The death toll passed the 550,000 mark with 701 reported Monday, according to a Johns Hopkins University tracker.

As of Tuesday, the U.S. has approximately 30.3 million coronavirus cases and 550,371 related deaths — both tops globally — according to the Johns Hopkins tracker.

Cases and deaths have dropped sharply from the pandemic’s peaks in the past few months, but health experts worry that states and jurisdictions are prematurely lifting pandemic-related restrictions as vaccines become more available, possibly putting the country on the precipice of another surge.

The U.S. currently has administered about 146 million of its 181 million available vaccine doses, with nearly 53 people now fully vaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
