The U.S. has reached another grim milestone amid the coronavirus pandemic, as deaths linked to the disease topped 100,000 on Wednesday, according to a database kept by Johns Hopkins University.

The overall death toll is now 98,875, and the number of cases of infection stands at more than 1.68 million, it said. It's equivalent to the entire population of mid-sized cities like Albany, N.Y. or Boca Raton, Fla. In about three months, COVID-19 deaths exceed the number of Americans killed in the Korean War, Vietnam War and the US conflict in Iraq from 2003-2011 - combined.

Countries with low death rates suppressed the virus "through lots of testing, contact tracing and policies to support isolation and quarantine of people at risk", Michaud said. Independent researchers have often produced even higher estimates. And despite the progress we've seen so far, hundreds of people in the USA are still dying from coronavirus each day.

To counter the increased disparities brought about by the pandemic and help prevent children from low-income households "experiencing consequences for a lifetime", the authors recommend that future COVID-19 legislation target child health and well-being.

The ministry said 39 deaths were reported over the last seven days, while a total of 236,769 cases have been detected since the beginning of the outbreak.

Globally, the coronavirus has claimed 355,615 lives and has infected over 5.6 million people, according to the Johns Hopkins Univerisity data.

That amount is your best quote and most assuredly an undercount.

That's likely in part because the country's commitment to social distancing appears to be faltering as states reopen and summer weather draws people out of their homes.

Still, there have been optimistic signs of relief for the U.S., with numerous worse-hit areas seeing key measures declining.

However, a silver lining is the rate of both deaths and new cases have been registering a decline, a development that has encouraged nearly all of the 50 States to announce plans to reopen their economies.

The 100,000 lives already lost in the USA serve as a painful reminder of what happened instead.
