  Global coronavirus cases surpass 63 million mark

The number of COVID-19 cases worldwide surpassed the 63 million mark Monday, according to Worldometers.

Worldometers has recorded 63,072,905 infections and 1,465,186 deaths since the virus first emerged in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December.

Some 43.5 million people worldwide have recovered from the disease.

More than 100 vaccines against the coronavirus are at different stages of development. US drug maker Pfizer and German biotech company BioNTech last week said their coronavirus vaccine is 95% effective, upgrading an earlier estimate of 90%.

Their announcement came days after US drug company Moderna said its own shot was 94.5% effective.
