Coronavirus: Confirmed global cases pass one million - BBC News

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
More than a million cases of coronavirus have been registered globally, according to the latest figures from Johns Hopkins University - another grim milestone as the world grapples with the spreading pandemic.

Nearly 53,000 people have died and more than 210,000 have recovered, according to the US university's figures.

The US has the most cases, and more than 1,000 died there in the past day.

The disease, Covid-19, first emerged in central China three months ago.

Though the tally kept by Johns Hopkins records one million confirmed cases, the actual number is thought to be much higher.

It took a month and a half for the first 100,000 cases to be registered. A million was reached after a doubling in cases over the past week.

Nearly a quarter of cases have been registered in the United States, while Europe accounts for around half.

The pandemic is taking a huge economic toll: an extra 6.6 million Americans applied for unemployment benefit last week.

This makes it seem like 1 in 20 are dying but there's millions of cases that aren't confirmed yet because testing has hardly started yet.

Meanwhile where i work in massive food warehouses in uk and we are like sardine in there. More than 1000 people on top of another with no protection equipment, they don't dezinfect our equipment and verry often we have to wash our hads with water only because he soap is not there.
Is not such thing us safe distance where i work. I ask for help for weeks now from everyone i could think of. Police, bbc and other news channels to come and investigate, i wrote to mp s and radio stations. I got no reply like nobody cares about us.. if you complain at work about his condition you are been told that we lucky that we have a job in times like this and if you insist they ask you that is better to look for another job . I have other family members that work on different food factories or warehouse and is the same there. Most of this site's are full with workers from east europe and most of us lives with big families because we can't afford to live on our own. If the virus got inside the warehouse and food factories around uk we will problaby look for this to last year's . Just think how many workers and they families could get infected around uk.

"The first priority has to be the patients whom the result of the test could be the difference in treatment that could be the difference in life and death." Dude, who do you think does the testing?! Who do you think treats those patients?! How are those people gonna be treated if there is no staff to treat them because they have all fallen ill and can't be tested! Idiot!
