Baltimore: Coronavirus has claimed 6,781 lives, around the world, in the last 24 hours and more than 94,000 new cases have been reported. Some countries have taken a bold decision, to relax conditions of lockdown, to reinitiate the economic transactions which have been brought to a grinding halt. This massive rise in the number of cases is being attributed to this decision.
Coronavirus has claimed 265,098 lives, so far, in the world. There are more than 3.8 million Coronavirus cases in the world and 1.3 million patients have recovered fully and have returned home. The United States has been the worst hit by the Coronavirus pandemic, claiming 74,809 lives.
