Independent Online/ UNB
Global coronavirus cases top 5.2 million

The highly contagious coronavirus continues to spread across the world as the officially confirmed case rise to 5,210,065 on Saturday morning, according to Johns Hopkins University.

So far, 338,142 deaths have been attributed to the virus but more two million people have so far recovered.

Coronavirus, first reported in China in December last year, is a respiratory disease which seems to start with a fever, followed by a dry cough. After a week, it leads to shortness of breath and some patients require hospital treatment.

These symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness.

They are similar to those for much more common viruses, such as colds and flu.

The US has by far the largest number with 1,600,937 confirmed cases and 95,979 deaths.

Brazil, the worst-hit country in Latin America, has the second-highest number of confirmed cases in the world. It has so far reported 330,890 cases.

The UK, on the other hand, has the second-highest death toll in the world with 36,475 confirmed coronavirus deaths.

Among other European countries, Italy, France and Spain are the worst-hit.

Meanwhile, China on Saturday said it received report no new confirmed COVID-19 cases on the Chinese mainland on Friday, reports Xinhua.

No deaths related to the disease were reported on the day either, according to the National Health Commission, adding that it received reports of two new suspected cases.

The outbreak was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 11 March. A pandemic is when an infectious disease is passing easily from person to person in many parts of the world at the same time.

Meanwhile, the number of confirmed coronavirus cases across Africa surpassed 100,00 as of Friday afternoon, the African Centers for Diasease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC) said, reports Xinhua.

Bangladesh’s confirmed coronavirus cases shot past the 30,000-mark on Friday with the detection of 1,694 new cases in the span of 24 hours. During this period, 24 more people died from COVID-19 disease, taking the death tally to 432.
