Global death toll from coronavirus passes 15,000: AFP

Mar 23, 2020 19:49 IST

The number of deaths around the world from the novel coronavirus cases stood at 15,189, according to a tally compiled by AFP on Monday. More than 341,300 declared cases have been registered in 174 countries and territories since the epidemic first emerged in China in December. The tallies, using data collected by AFP offices from national authorities and information from the World Health Organization, likely reflect only a fraction of the actual number of infections. Many countries are now only testing cases that require hospitalisation.
