While many countries around the world and cities in the U.S. are pointing toward positive signs that social distancing might be finally flattening the curve, the novel coronavirus death toll continues to be staggering.

In the U.S., more than 529,000 people have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. At least 20,602 people in the U.S. have died, the highest out of any country.

Across the globe, at least 108,800 people have died from the coronavirus.

Worldwide, more than 1.77 million people have been diagnosed since the virus emerged in China in December. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations' outbreaks.

    America has the very best doctors working. In individual silos controlled by Insurance Companies where the medical care is determined by the avilabity of funds in the Insurance policy. This is different to a country like Sri Lanka Or Canada where good health is a right of every citizen and is administered by the people throgh their government.
