The novel coronavirus has killed at least 566,075 people since the outbreak emerged in China last December, according to a tally from official sources compiled by AFP at 1900 GMT Sunday.
At least 12,798,410 cases of coronavirus have been registered in 196 countries and territories. Of these, at least 6,811,600 are now considered recovered.
The tallies, using data collected by AFP from national authorities and information from the World Health Organization (WHO), probably reflect only a fraction of the actual number of infections.
Many countries are testing only symptomatic or the most serious cases.
Since 1900 GMT on Sunday, 4,442 new deaths and 202,975 new cases were recorded worldwide.
The countries with the most new deaths were Brazil with 1,071 new deaths, followed by United States with 636, and India with 551.
The United States is the worst-hit country with 135,066 deaths from 3,282,554 cases. At least 995,576 people have been declared recovered.
