COVID-19: Worldwide figures of death rise to 108,334, with 1,717,551 cases

The worldwide number of deaths recorded from the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic rose to 108,334 on Saturday, according to a tally compiled by AFP from official sources.

More than 1,717,551 declared cases have been registered in 193 countries and territories since the epidemic first emerged in China in December. Of these cases, at least 401,488 are now considered recovered.

The tallies, using data collected by AFP from national authorities and information from the World Health Organization (WHO), probably reflect only a fraction of the actual number of infections.

Many countries are only testing the most serious cases.

The U.S. now top the list of the country with the most deaths arising from COVID-19, with a total of 20,456 out of 528,992 infections, followed by Italy with 19,468 deaths out of 152,271 infections. Spain is next with a total figure of 16,480 out of 161,852 infections.

France has reported 13,832 deaths and 129,654 infections followed by Britain with 9,875deaths and 78,991 cases.

China — excluding Hong Kong and Macau — has to date declared 3,339 deaths and 81,953 cases, with 77,525 recoveries. It reported just three new deaths and 46 new cases since 1900 GMT Friday.

Europe has listed 850,481 cases and 73,364 deaths to date, the US and Canada together have 564,661 cases with 21,661 deaths, Asia 286,441 cases and 10,588 deaths, the Middle East 95,005 cases and 4,632 deaths, Latin America and the Caribbean 56,888 cases with 2,344 deaths, Africa 12,884 cases with 692 deaths and Oceania 7,687 cases with 64 deaths.
