Global toll crosses 31,000; 2,227 deaths in US
Paris: The worldwide number of officially confirmed fatalities from the novel coronavirus rose to 31,412 on Sunday, according to a tally compiled by AFP from official sources. More than two-thirds of the deaths from coronavirus have now been recorded in Europe. Over 667,090 declared cases have been registered in 183 countries and territories since the epidemic first emerged in China in December.
Of these cases, at least 134,700 are now considered recovered. The tallies, using data collected by AFP offices from national authorities and information from the World Health Organisation (WHO), likely reflect only a fraction of the actual number of infections.
