The coronavirus pandemic in the United States passed a grim milestone overnight, as the disease has now caused more than 4,000 deaths.

Data from Johns Hopkins University shows that as of early Wednesday morning, the COVID-19 virus has killed 4,081 people in the U.S. The total number of confirmed cases is approaching 200,000.

In New York City alone, 1,096 people have died.

The U.S. leads the world in the number of confirmed cases. Italy has the highest number of deaths, more than 12,000, while the virus has killed more than 9,000 people in Spain.

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that Americans are in for a difficult few weeks as the virus continues to spread.

"I want every American to be prepared for the hard days that lie ahead," Trump said. "We're going to go through a very tough two weeks."

The White House predicted that as many as 240,000 people in the U.S. could die from the virus.
