US Surpasses 20 Million Confirmed Coronavirus Cases : Coronavirus Updates”

The US continued to surpass other countries in COVID-19 cases as it reached 20 million at the start of the new year, according to data kept by Johns Hopkins University.

Russian Federation has registered 27,039 COVID-19 cases in the past 24 hours, down from 27,747 the day before, bringing the total to 3,186,336, the federal response centre said on Friday. A total of 345,000 have died of COVID-19, or one out of every 950 USA residents, since the virus first emerged in China late in 2019.

By far, the United States remains the nation worst hit by the pandemic, with the world's most cases and deaths, making up more than 23 percent of the global caseload.

India comes in second place in terms of cases at 10,244,852, while the country's death toll soared to 148,439.

The latest figures come as Donald Trump's administration missed a year-end goal of administering COVID-19 vaccines to 20 million people.

California has the most total cases of any state, with about 2.28 million infections followed by Texas with 1.76 million cases and Florida with 1.32 million cases.
