Global cases of Coronavirus infection top more than 10 million
More than 10 million cases of the new coronavirus have been officially declared around the world, based on the official sources, half of them in Europe and the United States.
Europe remains the hardest hit continent with 2.6 million cases including more than 196,000 fatalities, and the United States with at least 2.5 million infections including at least 125,000 deaths.
The rate of infections worldwide continues to rise, with one million new cases recorded in just six days.
The tallies 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 and some do not have the capacity to carry out wide-scale testing.
