Coronavirus: Are the number of confirmed cases increasing in your county?

The number of confirmed novel coronavirus cases worldwide has passed 10 million as of the last week in June, with deaths from the COVID-19 virus hitting 500,000.

A quarter of those deaths have been in the United States.

While the virus has already spread around the world, the U.S. is seeing new cases as testing is confirming a rise in infections in states that had not seen as many reported infections per capita as states such as New York or Washington.

More than 2.5 million people in the United States were confirmed to have been infected, according to numbers from Johns Hopkins University.

According to the Johns Hopkins numbers, areas in the South and Southwest are seeing a surge in cases. Cities across the South are now requiring masks to be worn in public places, including Jacksonville, Florida, where the Republican National Committee nominating convention will be held in August.
