The global coronavirus pandemic has already left approximately 3,344,402 infections, and the number of deaths is already 238,787, according to the balance updated by Johns Hopkins University this Saturday.
The United States is once again the global epicenter of the pandemic, with a growth rate of 30,000 cases per day and already over 1,100,000 positive cases. The death toll is 65,068, compared to 18,399 in New York City alone.
This makes the United States by far the most affected country in the 187, when cases of COVID-19, the virus-associated disease that occurred in the Chinese city of Wuhan in 2019, have already been discovered. Spain is in second place with 213,435 infections and around 24,500 deaths, ahead of Italy – 207,000 infected and 28,200 dead.
The United Kingdom, which has dramatically increased its death toll this week after including those who lost their lives outside of hospitals, has registered 27,583 deaths so far, while the number of positives is around 178,000.
