Good morning, it’s Friday April 10.

Here’s your daily update on the coronavirus.

Worldwide, there are over 1.6 million cases of the virus worldwide.

466,000 of those cases are in the U.S., and New York State has over 159,000 cases.

Spain has the third-highest number of cases worldwide, with over 87,000 and Italy has over 143,000 cases.

The death toll is nearly 100,000 -- right now, there are 96,000 cases of the virus worldwide.

18,000 of those fatalities are in Italy, over 16,000 are in the U.S. and Spain has over 15,000 deaths.

New York state has over 7,000 deaths, which--using data from Johns Hopkins--means that it has the fifth-highest fatality count in the world, right behind France--with 12,000--and the U.K. with nearly 8,000.

California noted its first drop in COVID-19 patients being treated in intensive care units.

Governor Gavin Newsom said that there are 1,132 people being treated in the ICU, which is a 1.9% decrease from the previous day.

However, Newsom also warned that one data point should not be read into too much.

Within the U.S., California has the fourth-highest case count, with over 20,000 cases. There have been over 540 deaths within the state.

And that’s a wrap for this week. I hope you all stay safe.

I’m Katherine Ross and I’ll see you next week.
