The number of infections in the United States is by far the highest in the world - more than the two countries with the second and third highest rates, India and Brazil, combined.
The grim milestone comes less than a year after the Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported the first confirmed infection with the virus in a patient in Washington state on Jan. 20.
The first coronavirus-related death in the country occurred a few days later, on February 6, in California.
Infections and deaths slowed down in the summer but have increased again recently.
The death toll in May was 100,000. Six months later, the country exceeded 200,000 deaths. Death rates have accelerated since November - the next 100,000 deaths were reported just 11 weeks later on December 14.
A recent analysis published by the COVID Tracking Project found that the first three weeks of December "saw more COVID-19 deaths ... than any other month in the US pandemic".
During this period, an average of 2,506 people died in the country. In April, "when the country was still affected by the initial surge in the pandemic, an average of 1,842 deaths were reported daily."
