(Web Desk) – Worldwide death toll from coronavirus pandemic has risen to 259,872. According to latest tally based on official figures, over 3,760,512 coronavirus cases have been reported globally while 1.25 million coronavirus patients have recovered so far. The United States has the highest number of deaths at 72,695, followed by Britain with 29,427, Italy 29,315, Spain 25,613 and France 25,531 deaths. Earlier, in the US, the death toll stood at 42,514 with 792,759 infections. It is followed by Spain with 20,852 fatalities and 200,210 confirmed infections, France with 20,265 deaths and 155,383 infections and Britain with 16,509 deaths and 124,743 cases. Japan’s reported coronavirus cases have surpassed 10,000 as medical workers warn the country’s health system isn’t prepared for what might come. Protesters are gathering in several US states to oppose stay-at-home orders. Meanwhile, the World Health Organization has warned there’s no evidence to suggest the presence of antibodies in blood can determine whether someone has immunity. Conservative groups across the US organized protests to local restrictions this weekend, even as the country surpassed 700,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus. The demonstrations, which have bubbled up in Maryland, Utah, Texas, California, Arizona, Washington and Colorado, come as several governors have taken steps to gradually reopen their states and ease restrictions — some of which kicked in this weekend. Meanwhile, President Trump made inaccurate claims about the United States’ coronavirus testing in comparison to other countries during Saturday’s White House briefing, where he also complained at length about media coverage and criticism of his administration. There are now more than 2.3 million cases of coronavirus worldwide, with over 160,000 deaths. Nearly 39,000 people have died in the US from the virus.
