Global virus death toll surpasses 500,000 as confirmed cases top 10 million

Global coronavirus cases exceed 10 million

The reported tally comes from Johns Hopkins University researchers.

"It was mentioned that presently eight states - Maharashtra, Delhi, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh and West Bengal - contribute 85.5 percent active case load and 87 percent total deaths in India", said a Health Ministry statement on the briefing it gave to the Group of Ministers (GoM) on the Covid-19 situation in the country.

Infections are also up in some other parts of the world that have reopened, with Europe now registering over 2.6 million.

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.

European leaders were taking no chances, trying to tamp down new clusters. German authorities renewed a lockdown in a western region of about 500,000 people after about 1,300 slaughterhouse workers tested positive. New coronavirus cases have been surging in more than half of U.S. states, reaching record highs. Health authorities warned they expect numbers to get worse in coming days and are considering further lockdowns.

The two countries accounted for over a third of all new cases in the past week.

In Latin America and the Caribbean the virus is spreading the most rapidly.

Russia, India, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom are also among the hardest-hit countries in the world.

In the Middle East, the governor of Bethlehem announced that the Palestinian city would temporarily close due to rising infections.
