According to a recent AFP tally, coronavirus infections globally soared past 25 million, as countries around the world further tightened restrictions to curb the pandemic’s spread.
The data revealed on Sunday August 30, noted that a million additional cases have been detected worldwide roughly every four days since mid-July, with India setting the grim record for the highest single-day rise in cases with 78,761.
The surge in India is closely followed by New Zealand and South Korea are also battling new clusters of infections after they had previously brought their outbreaks largely under control.
On the other side of the world, Latin America — the worst-hit region — was still struggling with its first wave, with Covid-19 deaths in Brazil crossing 120,000, second only to the United States.
Nearly 843,000 people have died of Covid-19 globally, and with no vaccine or effective treatment available yet, governments have been forced to resort to some form of social distancing and lockdowns to stop the spread of the virus.
