Coronavirus cases worldwide top five million

AKIPRESS.COM - More than five million people have been infected with coronavirus globally and over 328,000 have died, according to Johns Hopkins University.

Latin America has overtaken the United States and Europe in the past week to report the largest portion of new daily COVID-19 cases.

The United States has seen nearly 92,000 deaths and Europe has had nearly 165,000.

It comes as the World Health Organisation (WHO) recorded 106,000 new cases of coronavirus on Wednesday - the most in a single day yet.

"We still have a long way to go in this pandemic," WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a news conference.

"We are very concerned about rising cases in low and middle income countries."

Brazil's outbreak worsened on Wednesday and the South American nation could soon have the second-highest number of cases in the world.
