U.S. Surpasses 27M Coronavirus Cases Amid Vaccination Efforts

The U.S. now has more than 27 million coronavirus cases, surpassing the mark as the country attempts to get a handle on vaccination distribution efforts.

Approximately 88,000 new cases were reported Sunday, putting the overall total at 27,005,831 from when the first U.S. case was logged on Jan. 21, 2020.

The daily totals are down drastically from the pandemic-era highs during the holiday season, however. A record 300,282 cases were reported on Jan. 2.

As of Monday, the overall U.S. tally far outpaces the rest of the world, with India coming in second with roughly 10.8 million despite having a population more than four times the size of the United States’.

The U.S. also leads globally in coronavirus-related deaths with roughly 464,000 — twice as many as second-place Brazil.

The U.S. noticeably stumbled out of the gate in the first few weeks of its vaccine rollout, though efforts have somewhat improved recently. As of Monday, about 42.4 million of the country’s 59.3 million available doses of vaccine have been administered, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
