The global tally for the coronavirus-borne illness climbed above 258.3 million on Tuesday, while the death toll edged above 5.16 million, according to data aggregated by Johns Hopkins University . The U.S. continues to lead the world with a total of 47.9 million cases and 772,344 deaths. The U.S. is still averaging more than 1,000 deaths a day, according to a New York Times tracker, and cases and hospitalizations are rising again, just as Americans prepare to hit the road for the Thanksgiving holiday. Michigan and Minnesota are leading the nation by new cases on a per capita basis and federal medical workers are traveling to Minnesota to support hospital staffing. German Health Minister Jens Spahn offered an ominous warning to unvaccinated Germans that by the end of winter, "pretty much everyone in Germany ... will be vaccinated, cured or dead." India is second by cases after the U.S. at 34.5 million and has suffered 466,147 deaths. Brazil has second highest death toll at 612,782 and 22 million cases.
