The number of worldwide coronavirus deaths topped 400,000 on Sunday, according to the Johns Hopkins University data dashboard — including more than 110,000 fatalities in the United States, most in the world.
As thousands nationwide continue to protest for racial equality and against police brutality following George Floyd's killing in Minneapolis on Memorial Day, U.S. officials are warning demonstrators to seek testing amid worries that the country could see a spike in new infections.
“Get a test. Get a test,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Sunday. "I would act as if you were exposed, and I would tell people you are interacting with, assume I am positive for the virus," Cuomo said.
Worldwide cases are nearing 7 million, with 1.9 million in the United States, according to John Hopkins data.
