Coronavirus Cases Reach 1m Globally As Death Toll Hits Over 50,000

LAGOS APRIL 2ND (NEWSRANGERS)-More than 1 million people worldwide have confirmed cases of the coronavirus, according to the latest data.

The gut-wrenching data from Johns Hopkins University also show a death toll topping 50,000.

At 4 p.m. Thursday, 1,002,159 people were confirmed infected across the globe while 51,485 people have died.

The US has more COVID-19 cases than any other country — with 236,339 confirmed to have been sickened by the virus, and 5,648 deaths.

The rising infection and death tally also comes as the virus’ economic toll mounts, with US jobless claims up nearly 10 million in the past two weeks, federal Labor Department stats revealed Thursday.
