Worldwide Coronavirus Cases Now Over Ten Million

The Wall Street Journal reports:

Coronavirus cases world-wide passed 10 million, and deaths approached half a million, as cases continued to surge in the U.S. and some states took steps to reverse their reopenings. The U.S. recorded more than 42,000 cases Saturday, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University, lower than the record 45,255 recorded Friday, but the second straight daily total over 40,000.

Florida, Texas, California and Arizona have accounted for much of the recent rise in cases, prompting authorities to impose new restrictions in those states and reverse their reopenings. The Trump campaign postponed events Vice President Mike Pence was to appear at in Tucson and in Sarasota.  The U.S. accounts for more than 25% of the cases world-wide, according to data from Johns Hopkins, which many experts say likely understates the toll of the pandemic.
