COVID19: Global cases near 10 Million
The deadly virus has killed almost half a million people worldwide
The deadly virus around the globe has infected nearly 10 million people so far. As per the Reuters tally, the number is about to approach 10 million patients very soon. The virus has caused the deaths of half a million people worldwide. The respiratory disease continues to spread fast across the globe with no proper treatment by around 200 countries so far.
The milestone will come as many hard-hit countries are easing lockdowns while making extensive alterations to work and social life that could last for a year or more until a vaccine is available.
Some countries are experiencing a resurgence in infections, leading authorities to partially reinstate lockdowns, in what experts say could be a recurring pattern in the coming months and into 2021.
