In other news, reported COVID-19 cases around the world surpassed 1 million on Thursday, April 2, doubling in a week as the virus spreads across Europe and North America and establishes a toehold in Africa.
Just before global cases surpassed the 1 million mark, the COVID-19 worldwide death toll passed 50,000, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
Italy had the most deaths, more than 13,900, followed by Spain. The United States had the most confirmed cases of any country, more than 240,000, the data showed.
In Italy, which hit a daily peak of 6,557 new cases on March 21, 2020, and accounts for around 28% of all global fatalities, the death toll climbed to 13,915 on Thursday, April 2.
But it was the fourth consecutive day in which the number of new cases stayed within a range of 4,050-4,782, seeming to confirm government hopes that the epidemic had hit a plateau.
The world knew almost nothing about the virus in December 2019, when reports of a new coronavirus started to surface in Wuhan, China.
Since then, it has spread to nearly every country in the world, disrupting daily life for millions under lockdown measures meant to curb the virus' rapid spread.
World Health Organization director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at a news briefing at the Geneva headquarters Wednesday, April 1, that the number of cases grew exponentially.
