US passes 30 million coronavirus infections

Washington, 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.
