These Five States Count for More Than 40% of US’ Nearly 5 Million COVID-19 Cases

Johns Hopkins University reported Sunday that the U.S. now has nearly 5 million confirmed cases of COVID-19, with around 54,000 cases reported each day.

Five U.S. states now account for more than 40% of the country’s case load. California, Florida, Texas, New York and Georgia carry that 40% collectively while case loads rise in twenty states. California has now reported 545,000 cases with 7,000 new cases reported on Saturday alone.

In Georgia’s Cherokee County District, CNN says at least 260 students and eight teachers were quarantined the first week after multiple students and staff members tested positive, including a second-grader.
