The number of confirmed cases of coronavirus in the United States has passed one million, according to John Hopkins University. This means a third of all cases globally have been in the US. The number is likely to be significantly higher due to a lack of testing. So far 57,000 people have died in the US, with New York and New Jersey the two states with the highest number of infections and fatalities. By comparison, Spain and Italy are the only two other countries to have registered more than 200,000 cases of coronavirus.
