The number of people in the U.S. who have died from the novel coronavirus has surpassed the 10,000 mark, according to data Monday by Johns Hopkins University.
The university’s running tally counted 10,335 deaths and 347,003 cases as the U.S. struggles to curb the outbreak.
The new mark came a day after U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams warned the week ahead will the “hardest and the saddest” one for the country.
“This is going to be the hardest and the saddest week of most Americans’ lives. This is going to be our Pearl Harbor moment and our 9/11 moment
