By Aaron Humes:Cases of COVID-19 worldwide have passed 5.3 million, with more than 340 thousand reported dead.

The figure is five times as many cases as reported on April 2.

But according to the BBC, China has recorded no new coronavirus infections on its mainland in a 24-hour period for the first time since the outbreak began in December.

The National Health Commission also registered no deaths related to Covid-19 during the previous 24 hours. China itself has confirmed more than 84,000 cases and 4,600 deaths.

However, the authorities’ stringent lockdown in Wuhan and the wider Hubei province limited the spread across the Chinese mainland.

The World Health Organization said on Friday that South America is now “a new epicentre” of the pandemic, with Mexico and Brazil both seeing steep rises in the numbers of confirmed cases.

Brazil has registered more than 330,000 infections, overtaking Russia as the country with the second highest number of cases after the United States.

Belize’s figure remains at 18 with 2 deaths, the last case confirmed some 40 days ago.
