Coronavirus tally: Global cases of COVID-19 top 192.6 million and CDC head warns U.S. not out of the woods yetThe global tally for the coronavirus-borne illness climbed above 192.6 million on Friday, while the death toll climbed above 4.1 million, according to . The U.S. leads the world with a total of 34.3 million cases and in deaths with 610,177 as the highly infectious delta variant continues to spread fast, especially in states with low vaccination rates. CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky warned Thursday that the U.S. is not out of the woods yet, as the highly transmissible delta variant continues to infect especially unvaccinated people. "It is one of the most infectious respiratory viruses we know of and that I have seen in my 20-year career," Walensky said at a White House briefing, with hospitals reaching capacity in some parts of the country. The CDC's vaccine tracker shows rates remain static from day-to-day, as fewer Americans come forward for shots. Just 48.8% of the overall population is fully vaccinated, and just 59.7% of adults 18-years-and-older have received both shots, while 68.6% have received at least one. That remains just short of President Joe Biden's goal of having at least 70% of the adult population receive one shot by the recent July 4 holiday. India is second by cases at 31.3 million and third by deaths at 419,470, according to its official numbers, which are expected to be undercounted. Brazil is second in deaths at 547,016 but is third in cases at 19.5 million. Mexico has fourth-highest death toll at 237,626 but has recorded just 2.7 million cases, according to its official numbers. In Europe, Russia continues to pull ahead of the U.K. by deaths at 149,796, while the U.K. has 129,266, making Russia the country with the fifth-highest death toll in the world and highest in Europe. The U.K. fully reopened its economy on Monday against the advice of healthcare experts, who are concerned at the continued rapid spread of cases there that is forcing many to isolate and quarantine.
