The worldwide number of reported virus cases crossed the 29 million mark on Sunday, just three days after crossing the 28 million mark on Thursday.  The number of cases currently stands at 29.16 million as of early Monday, an increase of 200,000 new cases in the past 24 hours.

The number of deaths, which reached the 900,000 mark on Wednesday, now stands at 927,984, based on data compiled by Worldometer, a service that aggregates and makes available world statistics.

There are now over 7.23 million active cases across the globe. In addition, almost 22 million people have recovered.

The United States continues to lead the world in the number of coronavirus cases reported, and now has 6.7 million cases. Officials there reported 47,646 new infections on Saturday, and the coronavirus death toll in the country stands at almost 198,000.

Meanwhile, India continues to have the second highest number of coronavirus infections in the world after the United States, based on reported figures, with 4.85 million cases, after reporting 93,215 new cases on Monday, although the number of deaths per million members of the population remains low at 58.   By comparison, that figure in the United States is 599 and it is 613 in the United Kingdom and 619 in Brazil.

Brazil remains in the number three slot, with 4.33 million cases, while Russia, which crossed the one million mark last Sunday, now has 1.06 million cases, putting it in the number four slot.

Peru is number five, with 729,619 cases, although it leads in the number of deaths per million members of the population, with 922, with the exception of tiny San Marino, where the population is too small for the figure to be statistically significant.

Meanwhile, Canada reported zero coronavirus-related deaths on Saturday, while cases have reached record levels in the Midwest. As of Friday, North Dakota, South Dakota, Missouri, and Iowa had added more recent cases per capita than all other states.
