As of April 16, there have been 2,138,763 global confirmed cases of COVID-19, according to information from the Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Research Center. We report this number with the understanding that there are many more positive cases that have not been confirmed and/or reported.

Johns Hopkins reported 142,735 global deaths, but again, this is with the understanding that not all deaths related to COVID-19 have been reported. A case in point was in New York, where Politico.com reported that, "Previously, the city had not counted people who died without getting tested for the coronavirus, or who died in nursing homes or at hospitals, but did not have a confirmed positive test result."

Johns Hopkins reported that 3,262,921 individuals in the United States have been tested for COVID-19. That is of 328.2 million people reported in this country (as of 2019 according to the US Census Bureau). That is slightly less than 1% of the US population.
