Coronavirus live updates: Global cases top 20 million; Mnuchin says relief deal could come this week

The United States topped five million cases of the coronavirus on Sunday, marking a grim milestone that represents roughly a quarter of all confirmed cases across the world. Markets and lawmakers aren’t yet sure what to make of President Donald Trump’s four executive orders aimed at expanding coronavirus relief for Americans. The weekend executive action came after congressional negotiations ground to a halt last week, leaving in limbo many Americans whose livelihoods have been upended by the pandemic.

The following data was compiled by Johns Hopkins University:

  • Global cases: More than 19.8 million
  • Global deaths: At least 731,500
  • U.S. cases: More than 5.04 million
  • U.S. deaths: At least 162,900
