At least 20 million people around the globe have tested positive for the coronavirus, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
The latest milestone comes just over a month after the world passed 10 million cases. More than 733,000 people have died from COVID-19 globally.
The U.S. leads with over 5 million confirmed cases and more than 163,000 deaths, making up about a quarter of all COVID-19 cases and deaths in the world. Brazil comes in second, with more than 3 million cases and over 101,000 deaths.
According to a New York Times coronavirus database, the U.S. saw nearly 48,000 new cases on Aug. 3, with many of them concentrated in the South. Several states have continued to reopen their schools and economies despite a surge in cases that began in June.
