Coronavirus Still Takes Toll: Over 500k Now Dead

Alwaght- Death toll from Coronavirus around the world has now topped 500 thousands as its cases have surged past the 10 million mark.

According to the latest figures released by Johns Hopkins University data, the global caseload stands at 10,154,984 and the world's death toll at 502,047.

Although data shows the overall rate of death has flattened in recent weeks, health experts have expressed concerns about record numbers of new cases in countries like the United States, India and Brazil.

Over 4,700 people are dying every 24 hours from COVID-19-related disease around the world, a Reuters tally shows.

The United States with 125,804 fatalities accounts for a quarter of the deaths. It has also reported some 2,548,996 confirmed cases of the viral infection.

In Latin America, COVID-19 cases on Sunday surpassed those detected in Europe, making the region the second most affected by the pandemic after North America.

Brazilians slam Bolsonaro amid new record in daily cases

That has pushed the total number of fatalities to 57,622, as the total cases reached 1,344,143.

The far-right president, who has attempted to downplay the virus a “little flu,” keeps denying the threat of the outbreak.

“Brazil is suffering immense pain, a hidden pain that throbs in the face of the incredible numbers of deaths caused by COVID-19,” the organizers said in a statement.
