The U.S. and its territories have surpassed 1 million coronavirus cases on Tuesday, according to figures compiled by The Post. The count represents nearly one-third of the world’s reported covid-19 cases and includes more than 57,000 deaths since February, though experts call those numbers an underestimation.

Meantime, Vice President Pence visited the Mayo Clinic and spoke with patients and staff while not wearing a face mask, an apparent violation of the medical center’s policy during the coronavirus pandemic. Of the more than half a dozen people visible in video footage of the visit posted online by “PBS NewsHour,” Pence is the only one not wearing a face mask.
