300,000 people have now died from the novel coronavirus disease worldwide!

At least 300,000 people globally have died of COVID-19 as of Thursday afternoon, according to a database maintained by Johns Hopkins University.

The world reached the milestone as public health experts warn that President Donald Trump is rushing to reopen the U.S. too quickly and has failed to orchestrate an adequate national response.

“Our window of opportunity is closing,” Rick Bright, an ousted government vaccine official, said in testimony before Congress on Thursday. “If we fail to develop a national coordinated response, based in science, I fear the pandemic will get far worse and be prolonged, causing unprecedented illness and fatalities.”
