Globally, new coronavirus infections hit a new record high Thursday with over 330,000 reported cases. Nearly 39 million people have now contracted the virus worldwide.
In France, coronavirus restrictions have been extended to the entire country as growing cases threaten to overwhelm hospitals. This comes after French police raided the homes of senior government and health officials Thursday as part of an ongoing investigation into their handling of the pandemic.
Latin America is also seeing a massive surge of cases. Brazil’s death toll has surpassed 152,000 as over 5.1 million people have been infected — the third-largest number of infections after the United States and India.
