The worldwide number of deaths from the novel coronavirus pandemic rose to 109,307 on Sunday, according to a tally compiled by AFP at 1100 GMT from official sources.
More than 1,780,750 declared cases have been registered in 193 countries and territories since the epidemic first emerged in China in December. Of these cases, at least 359,200 are now considered recovered.
The tallies, using data collected by AFP from national authorities and information from the World Health Organization, probably reflect only a fraction of the actual number of infections.
Many countries are only testing the most serious cases.
