Coronavirus cases top 1.8M worldwide

According to the COVID-19 dashboard by Johns Hopkins, the U.S. has at least 598,670 confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus and a total of 25,239 associated deaths. Hopkins' data previously showed that the cases had passed two million, which the university attributed to an "anomaly in Florida data for Okaloosa that drove a spike from 19,985 to 123,019".

The Swine Flu outbreak is estimated to have sickened between 700 million and 1.4 billion people around the globe, while the World Health Organization confirmed 18,500 deaths linked to the virus through lab tests.

New York's governor declared Monday that the "worst is over" for the state, despite deaths passing 10,000, as several states began devising a plan to reopen their shuttered economies.

As of Monday evening, the estimated worldwide death toll of COVID-19 is 119,483.

The university's running tally counted 25,239 deaths and 598,670 cases.

The other countries with the death toll over the 10,000 mark are Spain (17,209), France (14,393) and the United Kingdom (10,612). According to Johns Hopkins, at least 529,951 people have tested positive for the virus so far.

The coronavirus pandemic on Tuesday (April 14, 2020) crossed to 19 lakh mark with over 1,19,000 deaths.
