The number of people, who have died of COVID-19 in Mexico, has risen by 688 to 46,688 within the past 24 hours, Deputy Health Minister Hugo Lopez-Gatell said.

The pandemic has reached new highs throughout Latin America, with almost 2.7 million cases in Brazil alone. A total of 278,618 people have recovered from the disease.

The pandemic has killed more than 685,000 people worldwide, with over 17.8 million confirmed cases, according to figures compiled by the US' Johns Hopkins University.

In South Korea, prosecutors arrested the elderly leader of a secretive religious sect linked to more than 5,200 of the country's approximately 14,300 confirmed cases.

In Germany, where the government has been praised for its response to COVID-19, thousands hit the streets to protest new coronavirus restrictions, with organizers calling it "the end of the pandemic".

Hurricane Isaias' imminent arrival has forced the closure of some outdoor testing sites in the country.

Health officials have warned that the country's reported 424,637 cases - making them sixth globally - is not an accurate account of the coronavirus situation, due to shortages of testing and underreporting of the virus.

Officials worry it could take years before there is a recovery from the outbreak. All were tested, their movements monitored with electronic wristbands and required to be quarantined before and after.

The novel coronavirus claimed 1,088 lives in Brazil and 784 in Mexico over the past 24 hours, according to health authorities on Sunday. Deaths in July rose 20% to almost 154,000 total.

The country's Civil Aviation Ministry delayed resumption of global flights by another month until August 31. The testing requirement therefore only applies to people entering under limited circumstances, including French citizens who live in these countries.
