The US has topped over 500,000 deaths in the Covid-19 pandemic.
These will be the latest grim milestone for a country that has by far the highest death toll in the world from the virus.
The United States has seen more than twice as many deaths as the next hardest-hit country, Brazil.
But it is also one of the most populous countries.
In terms of deaths per capital, it ranks ninth, behind countries like the UK, Czech Republic, Italy and Portugal, according to Johns Hopkins University.
