covid-19-

NEW YORK: The novel coronavirus has killed at least 1,158,807 people since the outbreak emerged in China last December, whereas the overall number of cases has crossed 43 million, according to a tally from official sources compiled by AFP on Sunday(October 25).

Until Saturday, at least 43,323,383 cases of coronavirus were registered, of which at least 28,754,900 are now considered recovered.

The tallies, using data collected by the agency and information from the World Health Organisation (WHO), probably reflect only a fraction of the actual number of infections. Many countries are testing only symptomatic or the most serious cases.

Brazil currently accounts for the second-highest number of fatalities at 156,903.

The other top 15 countries with the maximum amount of cases are Brazil (53 lakh), Russia (14 lakh), France (10 lakh), Argentina (10 lakh), Spain (10 lakh), Colombia (10 lakh), Mexico (8.86 lakh), Peru (8.83 lakh), the UK (8.57 lakh), South Africa (7.14 lakh), Iran (5.62 lakh), Italy (5.04 lakh), Chile (5 lakh), Iraq (4.49 lakh) and Germany (4.27 lakh), the CSSE figures showed.
