London, September 29, 2020, SPA -- More than 33.26 million people have been reported to be infected by the novel coronavirus globally and 1,000,010 have died, according to a Reuters tally.

India reported its smallest daily rise in coronavirus deaths since Aug. 3 of 776, data from the health ministry showed on Tuesday, as global fatalities crossed 1 million and infections surged in several countries. The South Asian country's coronavirus case tally rose to 6.15 million after it reported 70,589 new infections in the last 24 hours, according to health ministry data, while total deaths stood at 96,318.

Though India's death toll is a relatively low 1.6% of total cases, the country, along with the United States and Brazil, account for nearly 45% of global COVID-19 fatalities.

Germany reported 2,089 new coronavirus cases on Tuesday and 11 more deaths, a tally from the Robert Koch Institute for infectious diseases showed.

Infections have been reported in more than 210 countries and territories since the first cases were identified in China in December 2019.
