The symbolic milestone of 100 million cases of COVID-19 in the US has been reached
America has officially recorded more than 100 million cases of COVID-19 since the pandemic began, according to the latest data released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The U.S. has recorded a total of 100,216,983 confirmed cases of COVID-19 as of Dec. 21, according to a CDC update released Wednesday, Dec. 28. The U.S. is the first country in the world to cross the 100 million case mark for COVID-19.
Experts said, however, that the actual number of cases is likely much higher, as people who test at home do not report their results to public health departments, while many others do not test at all.
Unfortunately, however, more than 1.08 million people have died from COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic, more than in any other country in the world, according to CDC data.
