PARIS (AFP) – Worldwide Covid-19 cases passed 150 million on Friday (April 30), as the number of new daily infections reach levels not seen since the beginning of the pandemic, according to an AFP count.

A total of 150.3 million cases have been declared since the virus was first discovered in China in December 2019, according to an AFP compilation of official data – with numbers soaring recently due to a relentless second wave in India, where 2.5 million cases have been detected in the past seven days.
