U.S. coronavirus cases hit 4 million

The number of U.S. coronavirus cases exceeded 4 million on Thursday, according to Johns Hopkins data.

Even as President Donald Trump is pushing for schools to reopen, the number of coronavirus infections is skyrocketing with the death toll expanding as well.

At least 143, 000 Americans have been killed by COVID-19 and the number of patients in hospitals has continued to rise dramatically.

With unemployment benefits set to expire, millions of Americans may be forced to scrap social distancing measures and exposure themselves to the deadly virus.

Democrats are for the benefits to be extended to protect workers and small businesses, but Republicans who are down in the polls are ready to terminate them, 100 days to election day on November 3, 2020.
