Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus task force coordinator, said if the U.S. does things “well” to respond to the virus, it could have been 100,000 and 200,000 deaths. If the country did nothing to respond, deaths could climb as high as 2.2 million, she said.

Monday was the first day where the United States recorded more than 500 deaths in one day.

The nation now has by far the most known cases of the virus in the world, at more than 160,000.
