Close to 5.5 million cases of the Covid-19 (coronavirus) have been officially declared in the world, more than two-thirds of them in Europe and the United States, according to a tally compiled by Ministry of Health( MOH) on Tuesday (May 26).
At least 5,497,725 infections including 346,269 deaths have been recorded, notably in Europe, the hardest-hit continent with 2,047,401 cases and 172,824 deaths, and the United States with 1,662,768 cases and 98,223 deaths.
The number of declared cases in the world has doubled in a month, and more than one million new cases of Covid-19 have been registered in the last 11 days.
The number of diagnosed cases however reflects only a fraction of the actual number of infections as many countries test only serious cases or lack testing capacity.
While, Malaysia sits at 7,604 cases as of May 26 , 115 reported death. 6,041 recovered cases while 1,448 cases still receiving treatment in the hospital. A total of 8 cases being treated in ICU and 5 of them need help of ventilators.
