The US now has at least 2,467,837 coronavirus cases and 125,039 related deaths, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
The country has seen its case and death figures spike dramatically this week, leading to a halt in reopening plans and reinstated restrictions in some states.
On Friday, the US reported 45,255 new cases and 629 deaths. The totals include cases from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and other US territories, as well as repatriated cases.
If Saturday sees similar figures, the country could tip past 2.5 million cases -- and health experts warn this is only the beginning of the pandemic.
