Coronavirus Live News: UK to quarantine arrivals from high-risk countries; global Covid cases pass 100m | World news


The number of confirmed coronavirus cases worldwide surpassed 100 million on Tuesday since the start of the pandemic, according to Johns Hopkins University.
The current total is 100,164,399.

Worldwide, at least 2,153,477 people have lost their lives to Covid-19.

The official number of cases recorded since the start of the pandemic in China at the end of 2019 is only a fraction of the actual number of infections worldwide, AFP reports.

Many countries have been slow to implement systematic testing, and some continue to test only the most seriously ill.

Poorer countries, on the other hand, only have the capacity for limited testing.

The United States, which topped 25 million confirmed cases last weekend, remains the country with the largest outbreak.

India is second with 10.7 million cases and Brazil third with 8.9 million cases.
