The latest data by Johns Hopkins reveals that the number of COVID-19 deaths in the world has surpassed more than 300,000.
The global number of COVID-19 cases is more than 4.4 million.
US states with the highest number of cases include New York, New Jersey, Illinois, Massachusetts and California, in that order.
US President Donald Trump on Monday announced an additional $11 billion in aid to help contain the disease outbreak in the US. However, the US death toll continues to increase as dozens of states begin to lift lockdown measures and ease social distancing rules.
“The increase is explained primarily by people’s movements, as captured in anonymous mobility data from cellphones,” Dr. Christopher Murray, the director of the university’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, said in a May 10 news release.
