U.S. surpasses 5m virus cases, Brazil death toll now 1,00,000

Provided by PA Media

As of Sunday afternoon, the United States had reported a total of 5,022,187 cases and 162,696 deaths - both the highest totals in the world - according to data collected by John's Hopkins University. According to the Worldometer, globally recorded coronavirus infections hit 20 million as of Monday, Korean time, with the death toll reaching over 733-thousand. "Five million is more than the entire population of Alabama - or of more than half the states in our union, for that matter".

While scientists at the University of Washington think case counts might have peaked in much of the hardest-hit states, they're now predicting that the variety of coronavirus- associated deaths in the U.S. might strike 300,000 by December, NPR reported.

Chile's death toll has topped 10,000 five months after the virus first appeared in one of the worst affected countries in Latin America.

The total number of confirmed cases throughout the world is almost 20 million, meaning the US accounts for roughly 25% of all cases worldwide despite only having around 4% of the global population. That's according to the tally kept by Johns Hopkins University.


"It's a number that boggles the mind and breaks the heart". Many Americans have resisted wearing masks and social distancing.

Knokke-Heist and Blankenberge, two popular towns on the Flemish northern coast near the border with the Netherlands, say they took the step to "guarantee public security".

There are still 23 active cases in the country, but all were detected in people entering the country who are being held in managed isolation facilities.
