The Latest Developments In The Coronavirus Pandemic


The new coronavirus has killed at least 6,420 people worldwide since its appearance in December, according to a report by the AFP from official sources on Sunday afternoon. More than 163,930 cases of infection have been recorded in 141 countries and territories since the start of the epidemic. This number of diagnosed cases, however, reflects reality only imperfectly, as countries have more or less restrictive accounting policies and criteria.

Since the count made at the same time the previous day, 653 new deaths and 12,153 new cases have been recorded worldwide.

The countries with the most new deaths in 24 hours are Italy with 368 new deaths, Iran (113) and Spain (105).

China (excluding the territories of Hong Kong and Macao), where the epidemic broke out at the end of December, has recorded a total of 80,844 cases, including 3,199 deaths and 66,911 recoveries. 20 new cases and 10 new deaths were announced between Saturday and Sunday.

Elsewhere in the world, there were Sunday a total of 3221 deaths (643 new) for 83,094 cases (12,133 new). The most affected countries after China are Italy with 1,809 deaths for 24,747 cases, Iran with 724 deaths (13,938 cases), Spain with 288 deaths (7,753 cases), and France with 91 deaths ( 4499 cases).
