The coronavirus pandemic, declared by the World Health Organisation (WHO) on 11 March, continues to rage around the globe, as several more countries have reported new cases of the disease, including several states in Africa and Latin America.
While the number of infections is surging in Europe (mostly Italy, Spain, and Germany), and in the United States, the country of origin for the virus, China, and South Korea have seen a decline in the number of cases and deaths registered per day.
Governments around the world have stepped up measures to curb the spread of the virus, including imposing partial/nationwide quarantines, cancelling mass activities, and suspending flights both to and inside the countries.
So far, the worldwide coronavirus toll has reached 266,000, and over 11,000 people have died, according to the WHO.
The Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Centre count later reported more than 307,100 cases and over 13,000 deaths globally.
