PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The confirmed death toll from the coronavirus in the U.S. has hit 150,000, by the far the highest toll in the world.

That’s according to the tally kept by Johns Hopkins University. The bleak milestone comes amid signs that the nation’s outbreak is beginning to stabilize in the Sun Belt but heating up in the Midwest, fueled largely by young adults who are hitting bars, restaurants, and gyms again.  

The surge has been accompanied by a burgeoning outbreak of misinformation and conspiracy theories about supposed cures and the effectiveness of masks.
