Bengaluru, September 16, 2020, SPA -- More than 29.52 million people have been reported to be infected by the novel coronavirus globally and 931,954 have died, according to a Reuters tally.

India's coronavirus cases surged past 5 million on Wednesday with a single-day jump of 90,123 infections and the death toll from COVID-19 is now at 82,066 with 1290 fatalities recorded in the last 24 hours, data from the federal health ministry showed.
