COVID-19 cases hits 10 million globally – Johns Hopkins varsit
Johns Hopkins University, United States has disclosed that the number of confirmed coronavirus cases worldwide has surged to 10 million on Sunday.
The figure comes as numerous countries like the UK ease lockdown restrictions, yet the pandemic continues to course through nations.
Countries like Germany, which effectively handled the first wave, are seeing a rise in new infections — a problem that experts say will recur until a vaccine is found.
This is after initial cases were first detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan in mid-December, before continuing to spread across the globe.
The US leads with the most deaths and confirmed cases worldwide. There are at least 2,510,323 coronavirus cases and 125,539 deaths from the disease in the country.
