US coronavirus death toll tops 100,000: Johns Hopkins
The United States has now recorded more than 100,000 coronavirus-related deaths, Johns Hopkins University reported Wednesday -- a somber milestone and by far the highest total in the world.
The country reported its first death about three months ago. Since then, nearly 1.7 million infections have been tallied nationwide, according to the Baltimore-based school.
The actual number of deaths and infections is believed to be higher, experts say.
