Coronavirus: Europe’s death toll approaches 100, 000

Europe now accounts for a total of 100,510 coronavirus deaths – nearly two-thirds of the 157,539 fatalities worldwide.

Many countries are testing only the most serious cases and the number of confirmed infections is likely to be a fraction of the true total, AFP News Agency reports.

Italy and Spain remain the hardest-hit countries in Europe, with 23,227 and 20,043 deaths, respectively, followed by France with 19,323 deaths. The United Kingdom’s official death toll is 15,464.

Spain’s death toll slows to a one-month low, as the country reported 410 further deaths on Sunday, down from 565 on Saturday, the lowest daily increase since March 22.

Globally, more than 2.3 million people have been infected and more than 159,000 people have died, according to a tally by the Johns Hopkins University
