Global coronavirus cases exceed 10 million

At least 10,003,942 infections, including 498,779 deaths, have been registered globally.

More than half a million people have lost their lives due to coronavirus, according to the figures by Johns Hopkins University on Monday.

The tallies, using data collected by AFP from national authorities and information from the World Health Organization (WHO), probably reflect only a fraction of the actual number of infections.

More than 10 million global COVID-19 cases have been reported, according to the latest official figures, with the respiratory infection being particularly unsafe for the elderly.

The most recent numbers from Johns Hopkins show the death toll now stands at 501,206 since the first cases emerged in China late a year ago.

The pandemic has now entered a new phase, with India and Brazil battling outbreaks of over 10,000 cases a day, putting a major strain on resources.
