Nearly 1 million people die from coronavirus 

As we mentioned earlier, the global death toll from the coronavirus has passed 900,000, while the number of confirmed infections is nearing 28 million, based on a tally by Johns Hopkins University.

The US is still by far the worst-hit country, with more than 6.3m cases, and 190,000 deaths - more than a fifth of the total.

Brazil is in second place with more than 128,000 deaths, followed by India with over 75,000 dead.

Mexico and the UK have the fourth and fifth most deaths - 69,000 and 41,000 respectively.

India, in particular, has been recorded more cases, and deaths, than other countries in recent days - even as some social distancing measures are being lifted.
