Johns Hopkins University in the United States reported on Wednesday night (local time) that the number of Coronavirus infections in the United States has exceeded two million.
The United States leads the world so far in the number of Covid-19 infections, followed by Brazil, Russia and Britain, all of which recorded less than a million confirmed infections.

According to Johns Hopkins, at least 19 states have seen a rise in total infections recorded over the past three days, especially in Michigan, South Carolina, Arizona and Arkansas.
More than 112,000 Americans have died from Covid-19 infection since the start of the outbreak, according to the university.
Also Thursday morning, the health authorities in Germany announced the registration of 555 new cases of Coronavirus since Tuesday.
This brings the total number of infections in Germany since the outbreak began, to 185,416 cases, according to the Robert Koch Institute.
The country also recorded 26 deaths over the past 24 hours, taking the total to 8,755 people.
More than 400 people have recovered, bringing the total who recovered from the virus to 171,200 people, according to the institute.
In the same context, the Mexican government announced on Wednesday evening that the death toll of the Coronavirus in the country exceeded 15,000 deaths, indicating that more than 4,800 new infections were recorded during the past 24 hours in a record daily toll.

The Japanese government is also considering putting an end to the number of people visiting it after the border is reopened this summer.
The Japanese newspaper “Yumiuri” reported that the authorities plan to accept between 200 and 250 visitors a day.
According to Bloomberg News, Japan will also put in place procedures to screen Japanese citizens traveling abroad.
