Covid 19: 500,000 deaths worldwide
The US and Brazil have seen the highest number of deaths.
There is a concern that poorer countries are now seeing an increase in cases and the World Health Organisation’s special envoy for Covid-19 David Nabarro has urged for greater global cooperation and ‘total unity of purpose’ in order to tackle the virus. Also: four armed men launched a deadly attack on Pakistan’s stock exchange in Karachi, and children’s author, Michael Rosen, reflects on being given a 50/50 chance of survival after contracting the coronavirus.
