Global Coronavirus cases pass 10 million

2020 has been full of grim landmarks, but this could be the worst yet as over 10 million Coronavirus cases have been recorded globally.

While some parts of the world are returning to normal, cases continue to rise including dramatic rises in Brazil, America and India.

To date, more than half a million people have died due to the virus in seven months. And twice as many people have been infected by Covid-19 than with severe flu. Which highlights just how contagious the virus is.
