The global tally for the coronavirus-borne illness rose above 143 million on Wednesday, according to data aggregated by Johns Hopkins University , as the death toll climbed above 3.04 million, after breaching the 3 million mark on Saturday. The U.S. leads the world in cases and deaths by wide margins, with 31.8 million cases, or more than 20% of the global total, while the 568,475 death toll makes up about 20% of the global toll. The U.S. added at least 64,530 new cases and 729 new deaths on Tuesday, according to a New York Times tracker. Outside of the U.S., India has the second highest number of cases at 15.6 million, and is fourth globally by deaths at 182,553, although those numbers are likely understated. India reported a record number of cases again on Wednesday, counting more than 200,000 for a seventh straight day. The country's hospitals are reported to be filling rapidly, it is running out of ICU beds and running low on oxygen. Brazil is third by cases at 14 million and second with a death toll of 378,003. Mexico is third by deaths at 213,048 and 14th highest by cases at 2.3 million. The U.K. has 4.4 million cases and 127,557 deaths, the highest in Europe and fifth highest in the world.
