The number of people infected with coronavirus in the United States has exceeded 10 million.

This is evidenced by data from Johns Hopkins University.

The United States continues to lead the world in terms of the number of detected cases of COVID-19. In total, since the beginning of the pandemic, 10.1 million people have been infected in the country, more than 238 thousand cases have died.

Earlier, it was predicted that Democrat Joe Biden, who had collected the required minimum to win the US presidential election, would face a crisis after taking office in January. Experts believe that the number of cases of coronavirus infection in the country will rise sharply. In their opinion, Biden “will inherit a potentially catastrophic situation”: a strong growth of the infected and a population that does not trust medical advice.

Prior to that, it was reported that Biden plans to introduce mandatory wearing of masks throughout the country. The politician intends to call governors and mayors of large cities from both parties in the coming days to convince them to introduce a mandatory mask regime.
