dpa/GNA – The number of confirmed coronavirus cases around the world has exceeded 100 million, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

This grim milestone has been reached almost exactly one year after the US confirmed its first case of the novel coronavirus, and a little over a year since the initial outbreak in Wuhan, China.

Over 2 million people have died of the novel virus worldwide, including 423,653 people in the US.

The United States has 4 per cent of the world’s population, but around 25 per cent of the confirmed cases of the coronavirus.

While a number of vaccines against Covid-19 have been developed, many countries are struggling to vaccinate people quickly as the virus spreads.

Meanwhile, new and more contagious variants have been spreading after originating in Brazil, South Africa and Britain.
