By BBN Staff: Belize may have reported a new COVID-19 positive case today, but the number of deaths locally remains at 2; however, the pandemic has claimed almost 400,000 lives globally.
The latest figures by Worldometer puts the number of global deaths at over 397,000 with a total of over 6.6 million confirmed cases worldwide. Notably, the number of deaths within the past 9 hours was around 4,000.
Of those currently infected with the virus, over 3.06 million are mild cases, while over 56,000 are in either serious or critical condition.
The United States is still the worst-hit country by the pandemic, now approaching 2 million confirmed cases (more than double that of the second most affected country) and over 111,000 deaths (more than triple that of the second most hit country). Brazil is the second most affected country with over 645,00 confirmed cases and over 35,000 deaths. Russia is the third most hit country, with over 449,000 confirmed cases and over 5,000 deaths.
Belize had gone 53 days without any confirmed cases, reportedly one of only 12 countries globally that was able to make that claim. The newly confirmed case resets the count, while the government takes the appropriate steps to ensure that the threat is contained.
