PARIS: The novel coronavirus has killed at least 406,466 people since the outbreak emerged in China last December, according to a tally from official sources compiled by AFP at 1100 GMT on Tuesday.
At least 7,130,550 cases of coronavirus have been registered in 196 countries and territories. Of these, at least 3,124,800 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.
The United States is the worst-hit country with 111,007 deaths from 1,961,185 cases. At least 518,522 people have been declared recovered.
After the US, the hardest-hit countries are Britain with 40,597 deaths from 287,399 cases, Brazil with 37,134 deaths from 707,412 infections, Italy with 33,964 deaths from 235,278 cases, and France with 29,209 deaths from 191,185 cases.
China -- excluding Hong Kong and Macau -- has to date declared 4,634 deaths and 83,043 infections with 78,351 recoveries.
Europe overall has 184,256 deaths from 2,301,720 cases, the United States and Canada have 118,900 deaths from 2,057,429 infections, Latin America and the Caribbean 67,114 deaths from 1,360,947 cases, Asia 19,996 deaths from 712,983 cases, the Middle East 10,715 deaths from 491,006 cases, Africa 5,354 deaths from 197,823 cases, and Oceania 131 deaths from 8,648 cases.
As a result of corrections by national authorities or late publication of data, the figures updated over the past 24 hours may not correspond exactly to the previous day's tallies.
