2.50 million corona cases worldwide
Let us say that corona cases in the country are increasing every day. India has joined the top 3 countries in the world with the highest number of corona cases and most of the people died from the corona. In India, 60 thousand people have been killed so far from Corona. While more than 35 lakh people have been affected by the coronavirus. While the total corona cases have crossed 2.50 crore worldwide, nearly 8.4 million people have lost their lives due to the epidemic.
The World Health Organization has informed that the number of people infected with coronavirus has been 5 times as compared to those affected by a serious influenza-like disease every year in the world. In the UNITED States, 59 lakh cases have been reported and 1, 82761 people have died. But, in China, responsible for spreading the corona in the world, there was a 14th consecutive day on Sunday where not a single local infection was reported. The 9 new cases that have come up have come from outside. This claim has been made by the National Health Commission there. Earlier, there were 13 consecutive days in China when not a single corona case was noticed. This is between May 24 and June 5. It may be recalled that despite the virus being launched in China 9 months ago, the infection figure has reached 85,031 so far and the death figures are also very low, i.e., 4,634.
