100,000

In just over 100 days, the US has recorded 100,000 deaths due to COVID-19. 

The first death from COVID-19 in the U.S., is believed to have been Feb. 6 in California. The social distancing measures widely adopted throughout the country succeeded in slowing down the virus’ spread, as borne out by the diminished rates of new infections and deaths in May – but not enough to keep the U.S. from reaching the grim milestone of 100,000 deaths on Wednesday, according to Johns Hopkins University data dashboard.
