10m COVID-19 cases globally: Europe, US account for over 50%

Global coronavirus cases exceed 10 million Global coronavirus cases top 10 million

At least 10,003,942 infections, including 498,779 deaths, have been registered globally.

More than 10 million cases of the new coronavirus have been officially declared around the world, half of them in Europe and the United States, according to an AFP tally at 0930 GMT Sunday, June 28, based on official sources.

Overall, the USA has the highest death rate with 128,000 fatalities and more than 2.5 million cases - roughly twice that of Brazil, which has the second-highest number of deaths at 57,000.

The first cases of the new coronavirus were confirmed on January 10 in Wuhan in China, before infections and fatalities surged in Europe, then the United States, and later Russian Federation.

New York, once the epicentre of the pandemic in the U.S., is now "on the exact opposite end", Governor Andrew Cuomo said, with the state reporting just five new deaths on Saturday, its lowest number since mid-March. So far, Britain has not targeted a specific region for a lockdown.

With 5,08,953 total cases and over 15,000 fatalities, India continued to the fourth-worst hit country by COVID-19 across the globe. The two countries accounted for over a third of all new cases in the past week, according to a Reuters tally.

The disease also continues to rampage through Latin America, with Peru topping 9,000 deaths on Saturday.

The pandemic has now entered a new phase, with India and Brazil battling outbreaks of over 10,000 cases a day, putting a major strain on resources.

They were followed on the list of confirmed cases by Russian Federation with 634,437 cases, India with 548,318 cases, the United Kingdom with 310,254 cases, Peru with 275,989 cases, Chile with 271,982 cases, Spain with 248,469 cases, Italy with 240,136 cases, and Iran with 222,669 cases.

Russian Federation on Sunday recorded 6,791 new coronavirus cases, bringing its confirmed infections to over 634,000, the third-highest number in the world.
