World updates: 10 million-plus infected with coronavirus, almost 500K dead

Global coronavirus cases have now passed the 10 million mark, and related fatalities have approached 500,000, according to a Reuters tally.

Seven months since the new virus first emerged, some countries are reporting resurgences in their infections, and have started to partially reinstate lockdowns that had paralyzed their economies.

Experts say life under social restrictive measures could become a pattern in the coming months and into 2021, until a vaccine is made available.

The United States has reported some 2,510,151 infections - the worldís heaviest caseload - and an increase of more than 44,000 cases from its previous count on Saturday, according to another tally, by Johns Hopkins University.

The US death toll has reached more than 125,539.

India and Brazil, which report over 10,000 daily cases each, accounted for over a third of all new cases in the past week.

Health experts say fatalities in Latin America could rise to over 380,000 by October, from around 100,000 this week.

The following are updates on the pandemic from around the world:

Brazil cases pass 1.3 million mark

Brazil registered 38,693 new cases of the viral infection in the past 24 hours and 1,109 additional deaths, the Health Ministry said on Saturday.

Brazil, now the second after the US in terms of caseload, has recorded 1,313,667 cases and 57,070 related deaths.

Mexico reports over 600 new deaths

Mexico reported 4,410 new coronavirus infections and 602 additional deaths on Saturday.

The figures took the total in the country to 212,802 cases and 26,381 deaths, according to the Health Ministry.

China reports 17 new cases, 14 of them in Beijing

China on Sunday reported 17 new cases, 14 of which were detected in the capital of Beijing, according to the National Health Commission.

Beijing, which reported its first case in the current outbreak on June 11, now has 311 confirmed cases.

Mainland China has at least 83,500 confirmed cases, with a death toll of 4,634.

South Korea reports spike in infections

South Korea reported a spike in the number of infections on Sunday, after 62 people tested positive for COVID-19.

That pushed the total to 12,715, according to the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC).

The new tally was higher than the 51 cases reported on Saturday, and was over 60 for the first time since June 20.

The total death toll remained unchanged at 282.

Australiaís Victoria State mandates testing for travelers

Australiaís second-most populous state of Victoria will implement mandatory COVID-19 tests for returning travelers.

The stateís premier Daniel Andrews said that Victoria had 49 new cases on Sunday - the highest in more than two months, also marking the 12th consecutive day of double-digit rises.

Australiaís total number of cases is 7,686, with a death toll of 104.

Germany reports 256 additional cases

The number of confirmed cases in Germany increased by 256 to 193,499, according to data from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for infectious diseases.

The reported death toll also rose by three to 8,957.

Two top Serbian officials test positive

Serbian Defense Minister Aleksandar Vulin has tested positive for COVID-19, according to a Defense Ministry statement, which said Vulin had no symptoms of the virus and is feeling fine.

The speaker of Serbiaís parliament, Maja Gojkovic, also tested positive for the virus, according to the state Tanjug news agency on Saturday.

Serbia has reported 13,792 cases and 267 deaths as of the end of Saturday.

Wearing face masks, French go to polls for delayed vote

Voters in France donned face masks to cast their ballots on Sunday in a delayed second round of country-wide municipal elections, a mid-term test for President Emmanuel Macron and his ruling party.

The vote had been delayed for three months due to the outbreak.

On Saturday, French health officials reported a previously-unseen increase of the cases since the end of May. Officials reported more than 1,500 new confirmed cases, bringing the total figure to 199,473.

The recorded death toll in France stands at 29,781.
