The global death toll from coronavirus has breached one million on Tuesday, according to data from Johns Hopkins University, with 33,282,969 confirmed infected cases worldwide.

But the World Health Organization (WHO) says that number is probably underestimated and the actual toll is likely to be much higher.

Some 1,000,867 people across the world have now died from the virus, data from JHU showed on Tuesday.

The United States has reported the most deaths – 205,069 – followed by Brazil (142,058), India (95,542), Mexico (76,603) and the United Kingdom (42,090) respectively on Tuesday, according to the Hopkins statistic.

The death toll is likely to rise further as the outbreak continues to accelerate in many countries around the world, with India fearing to top the world in coming weeks.
