The Covid-19 pandemic shows no signs of flagging, with cases worldwide breaching the nine million mark and infection numbers hitting a new daily high.

In a clear sign that the coronavirus continues to rage across the globe, flare-ups occurred in the United States and new cases hit Germany and Australia, while countries such as Brazil and India continued to see the number of cases soar.

The WHO reported a high in cases worldwide on Sunday, with the total rising by more than 183,000 in a 24-hour period, fuelled by high numbers in North and South America which accounted for over 116,000 cases.

Brazil, the world's No. 2 coronavirus hot spot after the US, officially exceeded 50,000 coronavirus deaths on Sunday, a blow for a country already grappling with more than one million cases.

Yesterday, there were an additional 218 cases confirmed here, with only one case in the community.
