Over a quarter million coronavirus cases recorded worldwide

More than a quarter of a million cases of the new coronavirus have been recorded across the globe, according to a tally compiled by AFP today based on official sources.

There have been at least 256,296 infections reported in 163 countries and territories, and 11,015 deaths.

The number of diagnosed cases reflects only a fraction of the actual number of infections as many countries test only those with the most severe symptoms.
