According to Johns Hopkins, There are over 40.1 million cases of the virus worldwide, with over 1.1 million deaths.

The U.S. has surpassed 8.1 million cases with 219,000 deaths.

Per the COVID-19 Tracking Project, there were 48,922 new cases reported Sunday, which is lower than the 57,943 cases reported the day earlier. 978,769 new tests were reported. And 393 deaths were reported yesterday, which is higher than the 780 deaths reported the day prior.

House Democrats and the White House are expected to meet later Monday to once again discuss stimulus.

This comes after weekend negotiations with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi set a deadline of Tuesday for settling on terms of a relief package if there is any hope of sealing an agreement before the election.

Pelosi said the 48-hour deadline from Saturday "only relates to if we want to get it done before the election, which we do.

Pelosi told ABC News, "We’re saying to them, we have to freeze the design on some of these things - are we going with it or not and what is the language? I’m optimistic because again we’ve been back and forth on all this.”

However, there is still some opposition to a large stimulus package, though President Donald Trump has said he's willing to go above $2.2 trillion, which exists in the Republican-controlled Senate.
