Meanwhile, according to an assessment established by AFP from official sources Wednesday at 3 pm, the pandemic of the new coronavirus has killed at least 224,402 people worldwide since its appearance in December in China.
More than 3,141,250 cases of infection have been officially diagnosed in 193 countries and territories since the start of the epidemic. This number of diagnosed cases, however, only reflects a fraction of the actual number of infections, with a large number of countries only testing cases requiring hospital treatment. Among these cases, at least 889,200 are now considered cured.
