The Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has challenged our society and the world in a variety of ways, with more than 500 million confirmed cases world-wide and 6 million deaths. The country has now had more than 80 million cases and 900,000 deaths from COVID-19, while New York itself has had more than 5 million cases and more than 68,000 deaths.(see the Johns Hopkins interactive map for details)
