The Coronavirus Resource Center at Johns Hopkins University has recorded more than 100,000 deaths in the United States attributed to COVID-19 - 28% of all COVID-19 deaths worldwide, APA reports.

The news comes as US states and territories move to begin reopening their societies after months of lockdowns aimed at preventing the spread of the disease. Earlier on Wednesday, the District of Columbia, one of the last holdouts, announced it would begin Phase 1 of reopening on Friday.
