Coronavirus Case Numbers High 200,000, However Might Be Worse Than Reported – .

More than 200,000 COVID-19 cases were reported in the United States on Friday, according to Johns Hopkins University. That’s a record that doubles the 100,000 cases first reported on November 4th.

The exponential increase in certain cases leads to new restrictions across the country to stop the spread. But there is a catch: fewer people are tested on Thanksgiving weekend because the test times are shorter and people are otherwise involved. That means the numbers could continue to rise when things get back to normal.

According to Johns Hopkins, 13.1 million people in the US are now infected with Covid-19. The total number includes more than 265,000 deaths in the United States.

Globally, there are 61.9 million cases and 1.4 million deaths, JHU said.
