Global deaths from COVID-19 stand at over 842,000, with the US having the highest number with 182,779, followed by Brazil with 120,262 and Mexico with 63,819.

According to a tally kept by Johns Hopkins University, the US leads the world with 5.9 million cases, followed by Brazil with 3.8 million and India with 3.5 million. India recently reported the highest spike in cases in a single day, as well.

The real number of people infected by the virus around the world is believed to be much higher - perhaps 10 times higher in the US, according to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention - given testing limitations and the many mild cases that have gone unreported or unrecognized.
