Five million people have been reported to have been infected by the novel coronavirus globally and over 325,000 have died, according to the latest tally. Infections have been reported in more than 210 countries and territories since the first cases were identified in China in December 2019.
The US tops the global rankings both for the highest death toll and the highest number of infections, with more than 1.5 million cases.
The country is continuing to post high daily case counts, though the numbers have remained relatively steady for over a month. The US recorded another 1,536 coronavirus deaths over the past 24 hours, the Johns Hopkins University tracker said on Wednesday.
