The number of CCP Virus cases around the world surpassed 2 million as of early Wednesday, April 15, more than three months after the fatal virus emerged in Wuhan, China in December.
According to data from the Worldometer website, the CCP Virus, or coronavirus, has infected nearly 2.02 million worldwide, including more than 610,000 people in the United States.
Nearly 492,000 of the confirmed cases have recovered, accounting for nearly one-fourth of the total, with the United States recording close to 39,000 recoveries.
Data shows that nearly 128,000 people in the world have died from the CCP Virus, including more than 26,000 fatalities in the United States.
While United States remains the worst-affected nation, New York state alone has more than 203,000 diagnosed cases, which is higher than any single country.
The United States has conducted 3.1 million tests for the virus so far, representing nearly 9,400 tests per 1 million people.
President Donald Trump on Tuesday announced that his administration would cut funding for the World Health Organization (WHO), saying its mismanagement and coverup of the CCP Virus has caused “so much death.”
The president blamed the WHO for its lack of support for his ban on travel from China when the outbreak began, adding that the U.S. government would conduct a review to assess the WHO’s role in handling the virus pandemic.
