There have been at least 516,369 Covid-19 related deaths since the outbreak emerged in China last December.

The figures have been compiled by AFP using a tally from official sources.

At least 10,716,650 cases of coronavirus have been registered in 196 countries and territories.

Of these, at least 5,430,100 are now considered recovered.

It is estimated that the tallies, using data collected by AFP from national authorities and information from the World Health Organization (WHO), reflect only a fraction of the actual number of infections.

Many countries are testing only symptomatic or the most serious cases.

The United States is the worst-hit country with 128,062 deaths from 2,686,587 cases. At least 729,9941 people have been declared recovered.

After the US, the hardest-hit countries are Brazil with 60,632 deaths from 1,448,753 cases, Britain with 43,906 deaths from 313,483 cases, Italy with 34,788 deaths from 240,760 cases, and France with 29,861 deaths from 202,126 cases.

China - excluding Hong Kong and Macau - has to date declared 83,537 cases, including 4,634 deaths, and 78,487 recoveries.

Europe overall has 197,825 deaths from 2,702,858 cases.
