The new coronavirus outbreak has now claimed the lives of 160,706 people across the world, and more than 2,328,600 others are infected, according to the latest data collected by Johns Hopkins University (JHU).

Here are the latest on the coronavirus pandemic from around the world:

Italy reports low daily rise in deaths

In Italy, the country with the second highest deaths after the United States, the deaths from the respiratory illness rose by 482 on Saturday, the lowest daily increase since April 12. That brought the total death toll to 23,227.

And the number of Italyís new cases was stable at 3,491, according to the countryís Civil Protection Agency.

The countryís total cases now stand at 175,925, according to JHU.

Spain ‘past most extreme momentsí

Spainís Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said on Saturday that the nation had "left behind the most extreme moments."

The countryís total death toll stands at 20,639, and cases number at 194,416.

The figures in Spain - Europeís worst-hit nation - have been increasing more slowly in recent days.

Sanchez said, however, that, "These achievements are still insufficient and above all fragile. We cannot put them at risk with hasty solutions."

The Spanish prime minister plans to extend but also loosen restrictive measures enforced to contain the spread of the new coronavirus.

Netherlandsí cases cross 31,000

Dutch health authorities reported an additional 1,140 cases on Saturday, bringing the total number of infections in the Netherlands to 31,766.

They also registered 142 new deaths from the viral infection, bringing the total fatalities to 3,601.

Germany reports 242 new deaths

Germany reported 3,609 new confirmed cases and 242 more deaths on Saturday, according to the Robert Koch Institute, a federal government agency responsible for disease monitoring and prevention.

The countryís total cases reached 143,724, along with 4,538 deaths, as of Saturday.

Turkey has most cases of COVID-19 in Middle East

Turkey has become the worst-hit country in the Middle East as its confirmed coronavirus cases have risen to 82,329, according to Health Minister Fahrettin Koca.

An increase of 3,783 cases in the last 24 hours brought Turkeyís overall tally to within a few hundred of that of China, where the virus first emerged.

Koca said 121 more people had also died of complications caused by the new coronavirus, taking the death toll in the country to 1,890.

China reports low daily increase in infections, no deaths

China reported 16 new confirmed cases on Sunday, nine of which were imported from overseas.

The remaining seven positive cases were locally transmitted, down from 10 the previous day, according to data published by the National Health Commission.

The figure was the lowest number since Saturday and down from 27 a day earlier, said the commission.

No new deaths were reported, it said.

Chinaís total number of coronavirus cases now stands at 83, 804, while the total death toll from the virus stands at 4,632.

Taiwan to quarantine 700 sailors

Meanwhile, Taiwan said it would quarantine 700 sailors who had been on a mission to the Pacific island state of Palau last month.

The decision was made after officials detected three positive cases of COVID-19 among the crew.

The navy will deep-clean the ships to disinfect them, Reuters reported.

Taiwan has so far reported a total of 398 cases and six deaths.

South Korea reports single-digit new cases

South Korea reported single-digit new cases of the viral infection for the first time in two months on Sunday.

The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) reported eight new daily cases, bringing the total tally to 10,661 cases.

The country has also registered a total of 234 deaths.

Philippines reports 209 new cases, 10 deaths

The Philippines recorded another 209 cases and 10 deaths, bringing the countryís totals to 6,087 cases and 397 deaths.

Guatemalaís new cases come from US

In Central America, Guatemala recorded 19 more cases of positive COVID-19 on Saturday.

President Alejandro Giammattei said the new cases were nationals deported from the United States.

The country has reported a total 257 cases of coronavirus infection and seven deaths.
