News Desk :
The total death from Covid-19 reported 3,71,479 globally with total cases 61,92,703 in 210 countries and territories while recovered 27,59,253, according to worldometer.
The 1,05,575 deaths reported in the United States with total cases 18,17,409 come from data collected by Johns Hopkins University. But it might not paint a complete picture. Some victims-such as those who die in their homes and not in a hospital-might never have been tested for Covid-19. And, sometimes, officials within the same state don't agree on how to report deaths.
Former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, tweeted a message to the families and friends of those who have died.
"There are moments in our history so grim, so heart-rending, that they're forever fixed in each of our hearts as shared grief. Today is one of those moments," he wrote. "To those hurting, I'm so sorry for your loss. The nation grieves with you."
The victims have represented some of the best of humanity:The number of US deaths forecast by August has shifted to 132,000 -- 11,000 fewer than projected a week ago-according to the IHME's model, one of more than a dozen highlighted by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Behavioral changes like wearing masks could be responsible for the reduction, Murray said.
Dr. Anthony Fauci told CNN that "simple" things like wearing masks and washing hands are crucial.
Fauci said such close gatherings of people without masks were "very troubling. ... That's really tempting fate and asking for trouble."
A "second wave" of coronavirus infections is not inevitable, Fauci said, with proper identification, isolation and contract tracing.
That's almost twice the number of Americans lost during the entire Vietnam War.
No one knew how bad the coronavirus pandemic would get when the first known virus-related death happened on February 6.
But since then, an average of nearly 900 Americans have died every day from Covid-19.
Deaths from the COVID-19 epidemic in Italy climbed by 111 on Saturday, against 87 the day before, the Civil Protection Agency said, while the daily tally of new cases fell to 416 from 516 on Friday.
The total death toll since the outbreak came to light on Feb. 21 now stands at 33,340 the agency said, the third highest in the world after those of the United States and Britain.
The number of confirmed cases amounts to 232,664, the sixth highest global tally behind those of the United States, Russia, Spain, Britain and Brazil.
People registered as currently carrying the illness fell to 43,691 from 46,175 the day before.
There were 450 people in intensive care on Saturday, down from 475 on Friday, maintaining a long-running decline. Of those originally infected, 155,633 were declared recovered against 152,844 a day earlier.
The agency said 2.405 million people had been tested for the virus against 2.369 million on Friday, out of a population of around 60 million.
The small central region of Abruzzo did not provide any fresh data on Saturday, the Civil Protection Agency said.
Spain's coronavirus death toll rose by four on Saturday to 27,125, the Health Ministry said, reflecting a dramatic decline in daily fatalities in recent weeks as the country brings the outbreak under control.
The number of COVID-19 infections increased by 271 to 239,228. Spain was at one point one of the worst affected countries by the pandemic but it has now has started to ease lockdown restrictions.
However, with people relaxing after months shut up inside, police have intervened in a series of incidents at parties, funerals and other social gatherings at which restrictions were broken.
In Barcelona, bathers were moved off the beach after some were spotted breaching rules by swimming in the Mediterranean, police said on Saturday.
The government said meanwhile that four small islands will be able to open the outside terraces of bars and restaurants to 75% of their capacity from Monday, a further easing of rules for parts of the country least affected by the disease.
Tables on terraces must still be kept 1.5 metres (5 feet) apart, according to regulations published by the Official Bulletin and affecting La Graciosa, El Hierro and La Gomera in the Canary Islands, and Formentera in the Balearics.
In the four islands entering phase 3, groups of up to 20 people can meet and shopping centers will be allowed to re-open at 40% of capacity. Hotels and other leisure establishments can have common areas up to 50% of capacity.
Companies should still encourage home working but also can organize the return of workers to the office as long as their arrival is staggered. Museums will be allowed to organize activities.
