Coronavirus: Global Tally Passes 2 Million, Fatalities 120,000

The number of worldwide Covid-19 infections has passed the 2 million mark with lives claimed by the virus approaching 120,000. So far, about 448,000 people who have also recovered from the disease.

The US tops the world with most infections and deaths that currently stand at over 587,000 and 23,600 respectively. Spain has overtaken Italy with over 170,000 infections (compared to Italy’s about 160,000), but the latter has more deaths on record (about 20,500) from the virus.

While the New York State’s death toll topped 10,000, the death rate in Italy, Spain, and France – three of the countries worst-affected by the coronavirus – appears to be slowing.

In Pakistan, the virus tally is nearing 6,000 as fatalities approach the 100 mark. About 1,100 people have recovered from the disease in the country so far. The center is mulling loosening virus rules as the lockdown adds more to the country’s impoverished millions. An announcement on this is expected sometime today.
