The global tally for the coronavirus-borne illness rose above 138 million on Thursday, according to data aggregated by Johns Hopkins University, as the death toll climbed above 2.97 million. The U.S. leads the world in cases and deaths by wide margins, with 31.4 million cases, or about 23% of the global total, while the 564,405 death toll make of about 19% of the global toll. The U.S. added at least 75,267 new cases and 932 new deaths on Wednesday, according to a New York Times tracker. The U.S. has averaged 71,511 cases a day in the past week, up 11% from the average two weeks ago. The CDC's advisory committee voted to extend the federal "pause" halting immunizations with Johnson & Johnson's COVID-19 vaccine over concerns over severe cases of blood clots reported in six people who have received the J&J shot. Much of the discussion at the end of the meeting focused on whether committee members needed additional clinical information before making a formal recommendation or whether waiting to make a choice would further harm Americans at risk for contracting COVID-19.
Outside of the U.S., India has replaced Brazil as the country with the second highest number of cases at 14 million, and is fourth globally by deaths at 173,123. Brazil is third by cases at 13.7 million and second with a death toll of 361,884. Mexico is third by deaths at 210,812 and 14th highest by cases at 2.3 million. The U.K. has 4.4 million cases and 127,407 deaths, the highest in Europe and fifth highest in the world.
