The overall number of global coronavirus cases has crossed 500,000 according to the John Hopkins University. The overall number of global coronavirus cases has increased to over 10.1 million.

The US accounted for the world's highest number of infections and fatalities with 2,548,143 and 125,799, respectively, according to the University's Centre for Systems Science and Engineering.

Brazil has so far has reported 1,344,143 infections and 57,622 deaths.

Russia ranks third with 633,563, followed by India at 528,859 and the UK at 312,640. As per experts—former CDC director Tom Frieden and Scott Gottlieb, former head of the US Food and Drug Administration—the surge in coronavirus cases seen in recent days is likely to continue for weeks as the states moved too soon to reopen their economies.

The increase in the number of cases is likely to result in a ban on US citizens from travelling to Europe.

US Vice President Mike Pence, who’s visiting Texas on Sunday, played down the current surge in states. He said that the increase in cases had affected just 4 per cent of US counties and more cases were found in young people, who are unlikely to suffer serious health consequences.

Pence, in a Bloomberg report, was quoted as saying, “There’s a temptation to associate the new cases in the Sunbelt with the reopening, but it’s important to remember” that states including Florida and Texas began to open up in early May and avoided a spike in infections “for the better part of six weeks,” he added.

Gottlieb said the spread of the virus was likely to continue growing in the absence of requirements for the “universal masking” of people in affected states.

According to the CDC, the real number of infections was five to 10 times that being reported, while, Frieden added that there were potentially encouraging signs in the growing share of younger people. But, that shouldn’t be a reason to grow complacent.
