The number of cases doubled in two days

The number of coronavirus-related deaths in the U.S. passed 2,000 Saturday, reflecting a death toll that has doubled in the span of two days.

On Thursday, the death toll in the U.S. reached 1,000, though it took nearly a month for the number of COVID-19-related deaths in the country to reach that high. This means that another 1,000 people died in a two-day reporting period in the country.

The total number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the U.S. now stands at more than 120,000, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
