The number of confirmed cases of coronavirus exceeds 1,200,000 globally, with the death toll rising to over 64,000, according to Johns Hopkins University. Per data provided by the World Health Organisation (WHO), the number is lower, with confirmed cases standing at 1,051,635, and nearly 57,000 fatalities.

Multiple countries around the world have shut their borders and introduced strict measures in a bid to halt the spread of the disease.

In December 2019, China informed the World Health Organisation (WHO) about an outbreak of a yet unknown pneumonia in the city of Wuhan in the central province of Hubei. On 11 March, the WHO declared the outbreak of the disease, caused by a new strain of coronavirus, a pandemic.
