US reports more than 25,000 COVID-19 deaths in July

The U.S. reported more than 25,000 deaths in July related to the novel coronavirus, according to data from Johns Hopkins University, a grim milestone for the country as it seeks to stem a rising number of cases.

The country saw 1.87 million new cases of the virus last month - an increase of nearly 70 percent - bringing the total number of cases during the pandemic to just over 4.5 million.

More than 150,000 people in the U.S. have died due to the virus, according to Johns Hopkins.

Several states in particular - Florida, California and Texas - saw massive jumps in their number of cases in July, as governors across the country pulled back from reopening plans or implemented new restrictions.

1. The equivalent of 100 passenger jets crashing with no survivors. In one month in America.
