The coronavirus death toll in the United States reached 150,000 on Wednesday, by far the highest in the world, according to the tally kept by Johns Hopkins University.

This grim milestone comes as the nation’s epidemic begins to level off in the Sun Belt, but warms in the Midwest, fueled largely by young adults who are once again found in bars, restaurants and gyms .

The push has been accompanied by a growing outbreak of disinformation and conspiracy theories about supposed cures and the effectiveness of masks.

Brazil was second with more than 88,000 deaths, followed by Great Britain with around 46,000 people.

Johns Hopkins has estimated the number of confirmed infections in the country at nearly 4.4 million, also the highest in the world, although actual numbers in the US and around the world are higher due to limitations in testing and the many mild cases that have gone undetected or not reported.
