Here’s what you need to know about the coronavirus on Monday, April 6.

There are over 1.2 million cases of the virus worldwide, with over 70,000 deaths.

There are over 271,000 recovered cases of the virus.

The U.S. has the highest amount of cases, surpassing 337,000. There have been over 10,000 deaths from the coronavirus.

And New York Governor Andrew Cuomo gave an update on New York’s cases, which are up to 130,000.

To put that in perspective -- Italy has over 132,000 cases of the virus.

New York has over 4,700 deaths. There were 599 deaths in the state in the past 24 hours, which shows a possible leveling off right ahead of the apex--which could come as soon as seven to ten days for New York.

Cuomo was very careful when addressing the plateau, he noted that this could be a sign that social distancing is working, but noted that if Americans--especially New Yorkers--stop social distancing now, it could push the numbers right back up.

Within the U.S. and outside of New York, New Jersey is the second hardest hit state when it comes to cases, with over 37,000 cases and over 900 deaths.

Michigan comes up third, with over 15,000 cases and 600 deaths. And then there’s California, with over 15,000 cases and nearly 350 deaths.

And the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General released a report based on a survey conducted of 323 hospitals and 46 states about their experiences during the coronavirus pandemic.

The reports key takeaways was that hospitals are facing challenges in both testing and caring for patients who have the virus, something that is backed up by reporting from journalists all around the country.

And the report also noted the difficulty that a lot of hospitals are having with personal protective gear (PPE). Hospitals are also apparently facing issues maintaining adequate staffing and support staffing.

And, of course, there’s the looming threat of increased costs with decreased revenue for many hospitals.
