KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Covid-19 pandemic has claimed more than 700,000 lives across the globe, a grim milestone that was surpassed on Wednesday.

A Reuters tally shows the United States, Brazil, India and Mexico are leading the spike in fatalities resulting from the coronavirus.

The new epicenters of the disease, the United States and Latin America are desperately trying to control the spread of the virus.

Many European nations have toughened restrictions to deal with the threat of a second wave of the coronavirus, according to AFP.

Stricter curbs, including a wake-up week in Greece and new face mask and quarantine rules, have been put in place by several nations.

In Athens, government spokesman Stelios Petsas said in an interview: “We are trying to awaken people with messages and daily announcements on additional measures.”
