The U.S. death toll is nearly 55,000 and the worldwide death toll is nearly 207,000. There are almost 3 million confirmed confections worldwide.
The pandemic’s true toll is believed much higher, in part because of limited testing, difficulties in counting the dead and attempts by some governments to hide the extent of their outbreaks.
COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the new virus, stands for coronavirus disease 2019. The disease first appeared in late 2019 in Wuhan, China, but spread around the world in early 2020, causing the World Health Organization to declare a pandemic in March.
