Global death toll from coronavirus tops 75,000

The coronavirus pandemic has killed more than 75,000 people people worldwide, the majority of them in Europe, since it emerged in China in December, according to a tally compiled by AFP from official sources on Tuesday.

A total of 75,538 deaths have been recorded, including 53,928 in Europe, the continent worst hit by the virus. The official tallies probably reflect only a fraction of the actual number of cases.

The number of coronavirus cases worldwide has crossed 13 lakh, according to the Johns Hopkins University tracker.
