Global coronavirus case total tops 5 crore

BOSTON — The coronavirus has hit another sobering milestone: more than 5 crore positive cases worldwide since the pandemic began.

People crowd the Naples waterfront, southern Italy, Sunday, Nov. 8, 2020. In a stark indication of how fast Italy’s case numbers are surging, less than two weeks earlier, the total of persons either discharged from hospital or no longer positive for COVID-19 was greater than those currently positive. On Sunday, according to Health Ministry figures, there were some 220,00 more persons currently positive for COVID-19 than discharged or recovered in the entire pandemic.

Johns Hopkins University’s coronavirus tracker reported more than 5 crore and 2 lakh COVID-19 cases globally as of Sunday.

There have been more than 12 lakh deaths from the disease worldwide since the pandemic started.

The U.S., with about 4% of the world’s population, represents almost a fifth of all reported cases.

The country has had more than 98 lakh cases and more than 2 lakh and 37 thousand deaths from the virus since the pandemic started, according to Johns Hopkins University’s data.

Coronavirus cases and deaths also continue to soar in the U.S., as they are in many countries.

The U.S. reported more than 1 lakh and 26 thousand positive cases and more than 1,000 deaths from COVID-19 on Saturday, according to the university.
