Good morning, it’s Thursday, April 2.

There are over 950,000 cases of the coronavirus worldwide, with over 47,000 deaths, according to data from Johns Hopkins.

In the U.S., there are over 216,000 cases of the virus, with over 5,100 deaths.

Italy has over 110,000 cases of the virus, with 13,000 deaths.

And Spain has over 104,000 cases of the virus, and--as of this morning--has passed 10,000 deaths.

Spain recorded 950 new deaths in the past 24 hours. This is the highest increase in a single day that the country has seen so far.

In the U.S., New York state remains the epicenter of the outbreak, with over 83,000 cases in the state. New York City has over 47,000 cases.

So, I want to put that in perspective. With those numbers, New York state--if it were a country--would have popped up sixth on the worldwide list on Johns Hopkins site.

The case count in New York is higher than Germany, and France. And New York has over 50,000 more cases than the United Kingdom.

New York City itself, with 47,000, has a higher case count than the U.K. and technically ranks sixth in highest case counts in the world.

There have been nearly 2,000 deaths in New York, with over 1,300 of those deaths in the city itself.

Governor Andrew Cuomo has said that the death count could reach 16,000 in New York.

And yesterday, Florida’s governor Ron DeDantis caved and issued a stay at home order to help curb the spread of the virus.

In Florida, there are around 7,000 cases, with around 84 deaths.
