Storyline


The momentum of COVID-19 infections worldwide continues to accelerate as the number of global confirmed COVID-19 cases approach 10 million with almost 500,000 deaths being recorded, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

There had been 9,962,193 confirmed cases of COVID-19 globally, including 498,723 deaths, according to the WHO dashboard as of 08:17 CEST Monday.

The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the United States surpassed 2.54 million, reaching 2,544,418 as of Sunday night, according to the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University.

Meanwhile, the national death toll of COVID-19 rose to 125,768, according to the CSSE. New York remains the hardest-hit state with 31,397 deaths.

The situation in Brazil continues to worsen with 52 daily deaths reported on Sunday, raising the country's COVID-19 death toll to 57,622.

In the last 24 hours, 30,476 new cases were reported, bringing the national count to 1,344,143, the Brazilian Health Ministry said in its daily report.

Of those infected, 733,848 have recovered, it added.

The country's most populous state of Sao Paulo has been the most heavily affected by the disease, with 271,737 cases and 14,338 deaths, followed by Rio de Janeiro, with 111,298 cases and 9,819 deaths.

Venezuela reported 5,130 confirmed cases with 42 deaths as of Sunday, according to the WHO.

Many doctors were forced to walk to work as the COVID-19 pandemic is paralyzing the country's public transportation network and cutting down on its oil supply.

Venezuela entered a state of alert due to the COVID-19 pandemic on March 13 before implementing a comprehensive isolation policy four days later. President Nicolas Maduro required that the quarantine policy be strictly enforced, with public transportation including subways and urban railways remaining suspended.

Spain has recorded 248,770 confirmed deaths and 28,343 cases of the virus so far, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

The country is set to uphold a ban on cruise liners docking at its ports to stop the spread of COVID-19, according to a ministerial order published on Saturday.

Cruise liners carrying thousands of passengers regularly stop off at ports in the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands, Barcelona and Malaga, but were prohibited when Spain went into lockdown on March 14.

With their crowds of often elderly passengers, cruise ships have been especially vulnerable to outbreaks of the virus and have been barred from disembarking in several countries.

Spain's ban on the vessels will continue until the novel coronavirus epidemic is brought under control, according to the Official State Gazette, even as the country otherwise reopens to tourists in an effort to revive an industry which has been hammered by the coronavirus lockdown.

Polling stations opened on Sunday morning for the first round of the Polish presidential elections, which were expected to take place on May 10 but were delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Signs at polling stations encouraged voters to adhere to social distancing measures and remain two meters apart.

Despite COVID-19 numbers still rising in the country, Sunday's first round of the presidential vote saw a relatively high turnout, with the exit poll indicating 62.9 percent of voters had cast their ballots, up from the 49 percent of five years earlier.

Poland registered 33,714 confirmed cases with 1,435 deaths as of Monday morning.

Egypt confirmed 1,265 new COVID-19 infections on Sunday, raising the total cases registered in the country since mid-February to 65,188, according to the health ministry.

Meanwhile, 81 patients died from the novel coronavirus, bringing the death toll to 2,789, while 400 patients recovered and were discharged from hospitals, increasing the total recoveries to 17,539, Health Ministry spokesman Khaled Megahed said in a statement.
