Global cases reach two million
Another day and another grim statistic, as the number of confirmed cases across the world reaches two million.
That’s according to figures from Johns Hopkins University, which has been tracking infections and deaths around the world.
More than 600,000 cases have been recorded in the US alone, while 128,000 people have died globally.
The true number of infections is likely to be much higher, as levels of testing varies by country.
It’s less than two weeks since the world reach a million confirmed cases.
