COVID-19: Number of global cases rises above 4mn

Washington, May 10 (IANS) | Publish Date: 5/10/2020 9:06:49 AM IST

More than four million confirmed cases of coronavirus have been reported around the world, according to a data collated by Johns Hopkins University.

The global death toll has also risen to above 277,000, the BBC reported citing the data.
The US remains the worst-hit country, accounting for over a quarter of confirmed cases and a third of deaths.
Experts warn the true number of infections is likely to be far higher, with low testing rates in many countries skewing the data.
Daily death tolls are continuing to drop in some nations, including Spain, but there is concern that easing lockdown restrictions could lead to a “second wave” of infections.
In addition, governments are bracing for economic fallout as the pandemic hits global markets and supply chains.
