Over 500,000 people around the world have now contracted the new coronavirus, overwhelming healthcare systems even in wealthy nations and triggering an avalanche of government-ordered lockdowns that have disrupted life for billions.

The US has recorded 1,178 deaths, while the global death toll stood at 23,293.
