Meanwhile, the global number of coronavirus infections has surpassed 5 million. Latin America overtaking the United States and Europe have been overtaken by Latin America in reporting the largest number of daily cases. The coronavirus first spread its tentacles in China then hit European countries with a record number of deaths as well as infections.
The US was the third to get the highest number of daily infections of coronavirus something that President Trump regards as the “badge of honor.” The US has 1.5 million coronavirus cases and nearly 92,000 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University. Trump believes that the U.S. highest number of cases is just because of better testing capacity. According to the US Center for Disease Control, the US had conducted 12.6m coronavirus tests until May 19.
The pandemic has claimed more than 326,000 lives, though the exact number is considered to be higher than this given the limited testing capacity of the countries. Many countries just don’t include fatalities outside of hospitals.
