TODAY’S FACTS AND NUMBERS
The number of corona virus cases worldwide has reached 4.5 million, 1.7 million of which have been recovered, based on data collected by Worldometer, a service that collects and provides world statistics. The death toll now stands at 303,372.

It is also important to remember that the number of deaths is an indicator that is lagging behind.
