The U.S., India (about 6 million), Brazil (about 5 million) and Russian Federation (about 1 million) lead the world with the most confirmed cases of the virus.

It is very crucial for the public to know that the Covid-19 pandemic is not over yet and we must do our best to prevent the situation from worsening. The country has reported more than 6,074,000 coronavirus cases in total and more than 95,500 deaths.

The other top 15 countries with the maximum amount of cases are Brazil (4,777,522), Russian Federation (1,162,428), Colombia (824,042), Peru (808,714), Spain (748,266), Mexico (738,163), Argentina (736,609), South Africa (672,572), France (590,021), Chile (461,300), Iran (453,637), the United Kingdom (448,729), Bangladesh (362,043), Iraq (358,290) and Saudi Arabia (334,187), the CSSE figures showed.

At the same time, lockdown restrictions were eased in some parts of the world, and people in the northern hemisphere turned their attention to how they would spend their summer. Speaking in the first presidential debate against his Democratic challenger Joe Biden, Trump said India, China and Russian Federation "did not exactly give a straight count" on deaths due to the novel coronavirus. More than 33 million cases have been confirmed worldwide and outbreaks continue to plague many countries.

The WHO warned that the worst could be yet to come and urged governments to implement the right policies.

It took just three months for COVID-19 deaths to double from half a million, an accelerating rate of fatalities since the first death was recorded in China in early January.

The decision was believed to be a good one as their bowlers showed some discipline in the beginning. Kane Williamson also chipped in with a knock of 41 runs to take SRH's total past the 160-run mark.

The milestone, recorded by Johns Hopkins University on Monday, comes nine months into a crisis that has devastated the global economy, tested world leaders' resolve, pitted science against politics and forced multitudes to change the way they live, learn and work.

Despite the surge in cases, India's death toll of 96,318, and pace of growth of fatalities, remains below those of the United States, Britain and Brazil.

So what can we expect in the future?

"There's been over a thousand deaths per day worldwide since 18 March and what seems to happen is as Covid-19 becomes controlled in one jurisdiction it gets out of control elsewhere".

But Bulgaria, Croatia, Malta, Romania and Spain have all been seeing sustained death rate increases.

"Life has returned to the kind of flavor we had before", resident An An said.
