India reported 20,000 on Monday, while the caseload in the U.S. is growing by about 40,000 a day. The United States on Monday reported 38,800 newly confirmed infections, with the total surpassing 2.5 million, or about a quarter of the more than 10 million cases worldwide, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University.
