There are over 50 million confirmed
With about 10 million cases, the United States is the country with the most confirmed coronavirus cases, followed immediately by India and Brazil. At least 230,000 people have died from the disease in the United States.
The coronavirus has killed more Americans than every war US troops have died in since 1945 combined, Business Insider's John Haltiwanger reported. The leading cause of death for Americans, heart disease, typically kills fewer than 650,000 people a year in the US.
For nearly nine months, people have been learning to live under once unfamiliar laws and recommendations from health officials. Quarantining, practicing social distancing, and wearing masks have become the relative norm in most countries.
Meanwhile, scientists and pharmaceutical companies have been racing to create a vaccine to prevent COVID-19. But it will take more time to release safe and effective shots — and even longer to inoculate enough of the global population to achieve herd immunity.
