Brazil now has 691,758 cases and 36,455 deaths. The US is the worst-affected country, with 1,940,468 confirmed cases and more than a quarter of the world’s deaths at 110,503. There are 15 countries with more than 100,000 confirmed cases.
At least 7,003,851 cases have been officially recorded around the world, including 402,867 deaths, and Europe is the hardest-hit continent with 2,275,305 cases and 183,542 deaths.
The United States has recorded 1,942,363 cases and 110,514 deaths since the outbreak first emerged in China late last year.
The tallies, using data collected by AFP from national authorities and information from the World Health Organisation (WHO), probably reflect only a fraction of the actual number of infections. Many countries are testing only symptomatic or serious cases.
