Coronavirus: Confirmed global cases pass one million - BBC News

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
More than a million cases of coronavirus have been registered globally, according to the latest figures from Johns Hopkins University - another grim milestone as the world grapples with the spreading pandemic.

Nearly 53,000 people have died and more than 210,000 have recovered, according to the US university's figures.

The US has the most cases, and more than 1,000 died there in the past day.

The disease, Covid-19, first emerged in central China three months ago.

Though the tally kept by Johns Hopkins records one million confirmed cases, the actual number is thought to be much higher.

It took a month and a half for the first 100,000 cases to be registered. A million was reached after a doubling in cases over the past week.

Nearly a quarter of cases have been registered in the United States, while Europe accounts for around half.

The pandemic is taking a huge economic toll: an extra 6.6 million Americans applied for unemployment benefit last week.

Unbelievable farce with this testing procedure....

Author — Hans Weissman


"The first priority has to be the patients whom the result of the test could be the difference in treatment that could be the difference in life and death." Dude, who do you think does the testing?! Who do you think treats those patients?! How are those people gonna be treated if there is no staff to treat them because they have all fallen ill and can't be tested! Idiot!
