More than half a million people have died from the coronavirus worldwide, marking another bleak milestone in the pandemic.
The latest death toll stands at more than 502,000, according to data from Johns Hopkins University, as cases continue to soar and outbreaks pop up in countries across the world.
The United States has the highest confirmed fatality count, having recorded at least 125,800 deaths — just over a quarter of the global total as of Monday, according to JHU.
More than 10.1 million people have been infected by the disease around the world. In the past few days, the Covid-19 crisis has deepened in the US, where only two states — Connecticut and Rhode Island — have recorded a recent decline in cases.
