Coronavirus tally: Global cases of COVID-19 top 141.4 million and death toll climbs to 3.02 million

The global tally for the coronavirus-borne illness rose above 141.4 million on Monday, according to data aggregated by Johns Hopkins University, as the death toll climbed above 3.03 million, after breaching the 3 million mark on Saturday. The U.S. leads the world in cases and deaths by wide margins, with 31.7 million cases, or more than 20% of the global total, while the 567,217 death toll makes up about 20% of the global toll. The U.S. added at least 40,482 new cases and 352 new deaths on Sunday, according to a New York Times tracker, although those numbers are likely underreported given reduced staffing at hospitals at weekends. The U.S. has averaged 67,308 cases a day in the past week, up 5% from the average two weeks ago. Half of all adults in the U.S. have now received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as the Associated Press reported. All U.S. adults are now eligible for a vaccine, meeting a key goal of President Joe Biden's administration set two weeks ago. Outside of the U.S., India has replaced Brazil as the country with the second highest number of cases at 15.1 million, and is fourth globally by deaths at 178,769. Brazil is third by cases at 13.9 million and second with a death toll of 373,335 Mexico is third by deaths at 212,339 and 14th highest by cases at 2.3 million. The U.K. has 4.4 million cases and 127,518 deaths, the highest in Europe and fifth highest in the world.
