NEW YORK: The global tally of coronavirus cases stands at 63,573,952. While 43,971,469 have recovered, 1,473,445 have died so far. The US, the worst-hit country, has 13,916,348 cases, and 274,324 have died from the disease there. It is followed by India, which has 9,463,254 cases, Brazil (6,336,278), Russia (2,295,654), France (2,222,488).

Meanwhile, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday he hoped that two promising coronavirus vaccine candidates would be approved shortly. The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency is yet to greenlight the Pfizer-BioNTech and Oxford-AstraZeneca co-labs.

Johnson stressed that his government could not let the optimist "run away with us." But he added there was every reason to believe that a working vaccine could turn the tide in the struggle against the virus.
