US passes 30 million coronavirus infections

Washington, March 25, (dpa/GNA) - The United States has recorded more than 30 million coronavirus infections since the pandemic began.

Data from Johns Hopkins University updated late Wednesday showed the country had passed a new record in coronavirus cases.

No other country has recorded so many cases, and there is likely to be a high number of infections that have not been registered.

The US is also the hardest-hit country worldwide when it comes to the absolute number of deaths from Covid-19, with more than half a million recorded.

The country of some 330 million people is moving to vaccinate the public quickly: more than 46.3 million have been fully vaccinated, while more than 85.4 million have received at least one dose.
