WORLD: The World Health Organization on Sunday reported that 461,715 people have died worldwide from the coronavirus while 8.7 million have been infected.

US: President Donald Trump had sparked controversy Saturday night at a Tulsa, Oklahoma, rally when he urged that less coronavirus testing be done in the US to reduce the number of detected cases, but White House staffers have said that he was only "joking."

BRAZIL: Brazil on Sunday broke the 50,000 barrier in terms of its Covid-19 death toll - reporting 50,608 deaths so far, while 17,304 new coronavirus cases were detected, bringing the total caseload to 1,084,000.
