More than 4 million people worldwide have been infected with the new Corona Virus, according to the data by Johns Hopkins University showed Saturday.
The numbers come nearly 90 days after the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus a “pandemic” on March 11, when there were 118,000 confirmed cases, and 4,000 had died. Spain has the second largest number of cases, at more than 220,000, followed by Italy with over 210,000.
Amid Corona Virus reopening
On Saturday, the Food and Drug Administration announced emergency authorization for antigen tests, which it said will be vital for reopening the country. The test can rapidly detect fragments of virus proteins in samples collected from swabs swiped inside the nasal cavity, the FDA said in a statement. U.S Covid-19 death toll rises, 51.000 and nearly thousands lose their jobs, Georgia, Oklahoma, and several other states took temporary steps at reopening businesses on later April, despite disfavor from President Donald Trump and medical experts.
Corona Virus commissioner warned
Corona Virus commissioner Angelo Borrelli warned the public that containment measures would “be stiffened” if the virus showed signs of taking off again. “We are monitoring things carefully,” he said Thursday.
Since the first cases detected in China in December, the United States has become the worst-affected country, with more than 1.3 million diagnosed cases and at least 78,794 deaths.
