COVID-19 Cases Hit One-Day Record: WHO

The World Health Organization reported Sunday a single-day global record for coronavirus cases since the beginning of the pandemic.

The WHO’s total figures showed 307,930 cases had been confirmed to the agency, CBS News reported. That figure has only topped 300,000 once before, when 306,857 cases were recorded on Sept. 6.

“Lives and livelihoods have been lost, the global economy is in recession and social and political fault lines have been exposed,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said via link Monday at the agency’s European regional committee, CBS reported. “We are no means out of the woods.”

As of Sunday, WHO has documented more than 28,870,000 confirmed cases worldwide, with more than 921,800 related deaths.
