Coronavirus global toll

The novel coronavirus has killed at least 472,173 people since the outbreak emerged in China last December, according to a tally from official sources compiled by AFP at 1100 GMT on Tuesday.

At least 9,116,250 cases of coronavirus have been registered in 196 countries and territories. Of these, at least 4,437,300 are considered recovered.

The tallies, using data collected by AFP from national authorities and information from the World Health Organization (WHO), probably reflect only a fraction of the actual number of infections.

Many countries are testing only symptomatic or the most serious cases.

The United States is the worst-hit country with 120,402 deaths from 2,312,302 cases. At least 640,198 people have been declared recovered.
