Lockdowns and other restrictions have been re-imposed in some of the worst-hit regions to help bring numbers down.

According to Worldometers, total cases of COVID-19 worldwide have surpassed 80 million and the global deaths from the virus have also surged at least 1,766,171; however, more than 56,985,098 people have recovered.
