Worldwide coronavirus death toll crosses to 170,436
April 21, 2020
WASHINGTON (92 News) – The worldwide death toll from the novel coronavirus pandemic has risen to 170,436. Over 2,481,374 declared cases have been registered in 193 countries and territories while 647,733 are now considered recovered. 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.
