Global Coronavirus Cases Exceed 10 Million

Coronavirus pandemic Global death toll reaches half million elderly at higher risk

In just five months, the number of people who have died with COVID-19 has overtaken the number of people who die every year from malaria - one of the most deadly infectious diseases.

The worldwide death toll is also nearing 500,000.

To date, more than 10 million confirmed cases have been reported globally.

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.

It's a number that many health experts believe massively underestimates the true picture of the pandemic's spread.

Global infections from the novel coronavirus have surpassed 10 million as the rate of new cases surges. The two countries accounted for over a third of all new cases in the past week, according to a Reuters tally.


In India, densely populated cities have been particularly hard hit. California had already ordered some areas to reinstate stay-at-home orders, and San Francisco announced a "pause" in its reopening.

Florida Governor said there had been an "explosion" in new cases after the state notched a record 9,585 infections in 24 hours. Young people frustrated by months of confinement have poured back to the state's beaches, boardwalks and bars, often without masks and seemingly unconcerned about social distancing.

Britain's government is pledging to support local officials in the central English city of Leicester amid reports that a spike in COVID-19 cases could prompt authorities to lock the city down.

Overall, the virus has spread to 188 countries and regions since late past year.

No new deaths were reported Monday, leaving the total at 4,634 among 83,512 confirmed cases of COVID-19. So far, Britain has not targeted a specific region for a lockdown.

In the United Kingdom, the government warned it might have to lock down the city of Leicester because of a spike in cases, but still plans to reopen pubs, restaurants and hairdressers across England on 4 July, dubbed "super Saturday".
