The global count of coronavirus infections surpassed 30 million on Thursday, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
The United States still has the largest share of infections — over 6.6 million, representing more than a fifth of all confirmed cases worldwide.
But the most dramatic increases in recent weeks have occurred in India, which has repeatedly logged more than 90,000 infections a day and overtaken Brazil as the nation with the second-highest total of coronavirus cases.
This week, India became the only country besides the United States that has reported more than 5 million cases.
Brazil has reported nearly 4.5 million infections, including roughly 217,000 in the past week, an increase roughly on par with the United States.
President Trump’s public rebuke of a top federal health official who did not parrot White House talking points about a fast-track coronavirus vaccine is the latest example of the president’s effort to enforce an upbeat narrative about the pandemic, even if that does not square with the facts.
