Paris, Nov 5 (AFP/APP): The novel coronavirus has killed at least 1,226,154 people since the outbreak emerged in China last December, according to a tally from official sources compiled by AFP at 1100 GMT on Thursday.
At least 48,110,360 cases of coronavirus have been registered. Of these, at least 31,701,200 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 testing only symptomatic or the most serious cases.
