Number of cases of Covid-19 passes 40million

The number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 across the planet has passed 40 million, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University.

The milestone was passed early on Monday according to the US university, which collates reporting from around the world.

The actual figure is likely to be far higher as testing has been variable and many people have had no symptoms.

The number of people who have died of coronavirus around the world passed one million at the end of September.

Of the global cases of coronavirus, 8.19million have been in the USA.

There have been 722,000 cases and at least 43,646 deaths in the UK.
