The number of reported COVID-19 fatalities has surpassed 50,000 on Friday making up more than a quarter of the world’s known pandemic death toll.
This is coming less than three months since the first known coronavirus death in the US. According to a coronavirus tracker by Johns Hopkins University, 52,509 people have now died in the United States from COVID-19 since the start of the global health crisis, with more than 870,000 confirmed cases.
More than 190,000 people have died from the coronavirus globally, and case totals have reached over 2.7 million, as of Friday afternoon.
In total, the U.S. has more than three times as many confirmed cases of the virus than any other country. European countries such as Spain, Italy, France, Germany and the United Kingdom have also been hit hard by the pandemic.
Nearly all of those countries have experienced a higher number of deaths per capita than the U.S., according to the data from Johns Hopkins.
