KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Around 12 million people have been infected with Covid-19 while seven million others have recovered from the pandemic worldwide, statistics from a US-based university suggest.

After emerging in the Wuhan city of China last December, the COVID-19 virus has spread to at least 210 countries around the globe.

In the first months, mostly Chinese citizens were infected and killed by the disease, which has now been controlled in China. But it is spreading rapidly in Europe and America.

According to data from the John Hopkins University, 12 million people have been infected with Covid-19 internationally.

So far 522,000 people have died from the novel coronavirus, most of them in European countries and the United States of America.

At least seven million people have recovered from the disease worldwide as of Thursday morning.

The United States suffered the most casualties, with more than three million infections and 134,000 fatalities.

In Afghanistan too, the virus is spreading fast, with more than 33,594 people infected and over 937 killed. More than 20,700 have recovered from the pandemic.
