The death toll from coronavirus has reached 1114 as the number of people infected passes 45,000.
Authorities in the Chinese province of Hubei – ground zero for the Covid-19 epidemic – reported 94 new deaths from the virus today.
Although slightly down from yesterday’s grim total, the overall death toll is steadily rising.
The total number of people infected around the world is 45,079.
With 1638 newly-confirmed infections in Hubei, it means there are more than 33,366 people infected in that province alone.
