Globally, the confirmed coronavirus death toll has topped 807,000. The United States has recorded the most deaths, followed by Brazil, Mexico and India, which crossed the 3 million mark for cases on Sunday. Meanwhile, countries including Australia, Spain, and South Korea are grappling with a second wave of the virus. This is the director of the South Korean Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Dr. Jung Eun-kyeong: “We’ve been having more than 300 patients for three consecutive days. It is not just happening in the capital area but in 17 cities and provinces nationwide. We are in a very grave and serious situation, facing a nationwide pandemic.”
In Peru, which is the second most infected country in Latin America after Brazil, at least 13 people were either crushed to death or asphyxiated at a Lima nightclub after it was raided by police for violating coronavirus restrictions.
