In Italy, the hardest-hit country in terms of the number of deaths, there were 115,242 reported cases and 13,915 deaths. Spain reported 110,238 cases and 10,003 deaths, and China – where the coronavirus first emerged late last year –- reported 81,589 infections and 3,318 deaths. 

The number of actual infections is believed to be higher since many countries are only testing severe cases or patients requiring hospitalization.
