A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 317,000 people worldwide.

More than 4.7 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations' outbreaks.

The United States death toll from COVID-19 has surpassed 90,000.

According to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University, 90,193 people have died from the virus in the U.S.

Earlier this month, President Donald Trump again revised his estimate of how many Americans will die from the coronavirus, saying it could be as many as 100,000.
