The worldwide COVID-19 case count hit a grim milestone. According to an AFP tally, the number of confirmed coronavirus cases around the world has now passed 100 million since the start of the pandemic.

Many health experts, however, have pointed out, the worldwide case number is likely higher, as is the death toll, which sits at over 2.1 million worldwide, due to a lack of adequate testing and contact tracing— especially in the poorest nations.

The United States, which passed 25 million confirmed cases last weekend, remains the country with the largest outbreak.

India is second with 10.7 million cases, and Brazil third with 8.9 million cases. Meanwhile, Canada has reported 756,250 cases and 19,376 deaths linked to the virus since the start of the pandemic.

Almost 70% of Canada’s cases are split between Quebec and Ontario.
