Beijing/Seoul: More than 4,000 deaths were caused by Coronavirus in the world on Saturday, taking the total number of deaths to 280,702. In the last 24 hours, nearly 89,000 new cases have been reported from around the world. There is a dreaded possibility that these cases are a part of the second wave hitting China and South Korea.
Coronavirus has claimed 1,568 lives in the United States in the last 24 hours. This takes the number of deaths caused by the pandemic to over 80,000. There are 1,347,167 Coronavirus cases in the United States with an addition of 25,000 new cases in the last 24 hours. In the United Kingdom, 346 patients died during the previous 24 hours. At the same time, John Hopkins University has informed that 194 deaths were reported from Italy and 179 deaths were reported from Spain on Saturday.
The number of deaths has increased in Brazil. In the last 24 hours, the pandemic claimed 734 lives, with an addition of 10,656 new cases. The total number of deaths in Brazil has reached 10,656, with the total number of Coronavirus cases crossing 156,000. An additional 10,000 cases were reported in Russia for the 7th successive day. The number of cases in the country has reached 209,000.
14 new cases were reported from the city of Wuhan in China on Saturday. The Chinese agencies claimed that these patients have come to Wuhan from some other country. According to the Chinese media, 12 out of the 14 new cases were local residents. China had been boasting that the virus had been completely eradicated from Wuhan, where the Coronavirus originated from. But it is becoming clear that this propaganda will backfire on China. It is being said that the second wave of Coronavirus has hit China, as new cases are being reported in Wuhan.
Like China, 34 new cases have been reported even from South Korea. The Korean analysts are expressing fears that this is the second wave of Coronavirus hitting the country. The Korean agencies are criticising that this is because of the haste shown in relaxing the lockdown, claiming that the pandemic in the country has ebbed.
