The coronavirus pandemic, which hit the Chinese city of Wuhan in late 2019, is nearly 24.7 million cases, after nearly 284,000 new infections emerged on the last day. This is evident from the balance offered by the university this Saturday to Johns Hopkins over the 188 countries and territories affected.
A total of 24,749,453 people have contracted the virus, more than half of whom live in the three hardest hit countries – US, Brazil and India – while the death toll is already above the 837,340 after another 6,000 one day Deaths have occurred.
There are already 16.2 million people who have managed to overcome the disease. Brazil tops the list with just over 3.1 million patients cured, followed by India with more than 2.6 million and the United States with just over 2.1 million.
The latter country is the most severely affected by the pandemic in the world, with more than 5.9 million cases. On the last day, it exceeded 181,000 deaths, 181,775, which also puts it at the top in this section. The United States Institute of Health Metrics and Assessment (IHME) estimates that 317,000 people in the country may have died from the coronavirus.
