The U.S. has now reported a total of 581,679 coronavirus cases and 23,529 deaths as of Monday, according to Johns Hopkins' latest tally.

CCTV has confirmed that the earlier published number of 682,619 total cases in the U.S. was a mistake, and the university has made the correction.    

The death toll in New York State has surpassed 10,000, Governor Andrew Cuomo said in his daily press briefing. New York saw 671 more COVID-19 deaths on April 12, totaling 10,056 patients who have died from COVID-19 in the state.

President Donald Trump said on Monday that his administration was close to completing a plan to reopen the U.S. economy, and he will work with states on the plan but the president will call the shots.
