The CDC has estimated that as of May 9, 2.8 million Americans have been infected with the coronavirus, and another 6.3 million have died of the disease.
The numbers do not include the nearly 20 million people who have contracted the disease and have died in the U.S. That number is expected to rise over the coming weeks, as the virus enters the rest of the world.
But the CDC’s estimate is an estimate based on an analysis of coronaviruses circulating in the United States, and that number is still an outlier in the global coronaviral data.
The analysis of data from the coronavalve coronavillae database, published Thursday in the Journal of the American Medical Association, found that the number of people in the country who have died due to COVID has been increasing for about 10 years.
More people have died, but the number who have been confirmed with COVID is actually higher than the global average, the researchers found.
In 2015, there were 4,082 confirmed cases, but by May, there had been more than 17,000 confirmed cases.
By contrast, the global number of confirmed cases has dropped by more than 20% since the start of the pandemic in 2007.
“It is very likely that this number will continue to increase,” Dr. Michael Hough, a public health epidemiologist at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, told The Associated Press.
“But it is still very low.”
The number of new infections in the last 10 years is also an outlying indicator of a more recent increase, because the number is not based on coronavirin tests.
In the first three months of 2017, more than 3,500 people tested positive for coronavira, according to the National Center for Health Statistics.
But those results are based on tests done at the beginning of the year, and since then, the number has dropped.
The new data is based on a sample of people who were tested at a coronaviolapsy laboratory in California that also tested positive at the end of May, and a database of tests conducted at the time of the original coronavolirus outbreak in the early 1990s.
That data is now part of the U of S-based Global Health Data Project, which tracks the global rate of COVID deaths.
CDC data shows that the death rate from COV-19 has been rising for about 20 years, and now it is expected that it will continue going up, according the analysis.
For now, the overall death rate is still low, said Dr. David J. Henningsen, an infectious disease specialist at Johns Baldwin College and an expert in coronavievirus disease.
But that number could rise in coming weeks.
The number of deaths that the CDC is currently tracking is still below the global death rate of 11.1 per 100,000, which is a rate that is higher than any other country.
Hough and colleagues estimate that COVID cases in the next six months could reach about 25,000 a day, the peak number of cases in 2018, and it could be even higher than that.
Dr. Michael K. Mann, the chief of the CDCs National Center of Coronavirus Control, told the AP that coronavivirus cases are expected to peak around the end (April) of this year.
The virus may peak in late April or early May, he said.
