One hundred thousand coronavirus deaths in the U.S. was the low estimate.

That figure, the bottom end of the White House's best-picture scenario of 100,000 to 240,000 deaths, was reached in late May after the virus spread across the United States.

Already, the death toll in the U.S. has eclipsed those of every other country.

Track the number of reported new deaths each day in the country and in the hardest-hit states. NBC News will update the data in these charts between 6 and 7 p.m. ET daily. See the number of new confirmed cases per day in each state here.

Since New York's first recorded death on March 14, more than 30,000 of its people have died of COVID-19.

Around the rest of the country, New Jersey, Illinois, Massachusetts and California have had the most deaths. Note that these charts are on a different scale than the New York state chart above.
