Despite the governments all around the world working day in and out towards the
containment of the virus outbreak, coronavirus cases all around the world have
now crossed the 3.5 million mark.
Statistics suggest that 3/4th of the cases worldwide are in Europe and the United
States. Worldwide reports suggest that there are at least 3,500,517 infection cases and 246,893 deaths have been recorded so far. Among the continents,
Europe seems to be the worst hit continent with over 1.5 million cases and over
Nations all around the world, in a desperate attempt to flatten the curve, have incorporated lockdowns. Essential services are functional and medical services are
employed on a 24×7 basis until there happens to be any sign on the reduction of cases.

Countries all around the world are keeping their political differences aside and are collectively trying to tackle the problem at hand. But at the moment, efforts seem
to be in vain.
The United States has registered over 1.1 million cases and 67,000 deaths so far.
For a country with one of the best medical facilities in the world, these numbers stand to be worrisome.
