KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Around 13 million people have been infected with Covid-19 while eight 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 by China. But it is spreading rapidly in Europe and America.

According to data from the Johns Hopkins University, 13 million people have been infected with Covid-19 internationally.

So far 572,000 individuals have died from the novel coronavirus, most of them in European countries and the United States of America.

Nearly eight million people have recovered from the disease worldwide. The US has suffered the most casualties, with more than three million infections and 137,000 fatalities.

In Afghanistan, the virus is spreading fast, with more than 34,605 people infected and 1038 killed.  About 21,280 have recovered from the pandemic.
