Global Update

The novel coronavirus has killed at least 893,524 people since the outbreak emerged in China last December, according to a tally from official sources compiled by AFP at 1100 GMT on Tuesday.

At least 27,387,170 cases have been registered. Of these, at least 18,115,200 are now considered recovered.

The tallies, using data collected by AFP from national authorities and information from the World Health Organization (WHO), probably reflect only a fraction of the actual number of infections.

Many countries are testing only symptomatic or the most serious cases.

On Monday, 3,816 new deaths and 236,135 new cases were recorded worldwide. Based on latest reports, the countries with the most new deaths are India with 1,133 new deaths, followed by Brazil with 310 and United States with 299.

The United States is the worst-hit country with 189,221 deaths from 6,301,451 cases. At least 2,333,551 people have been declared recovered.
