NEW DELHI AFP Aug30, 2020- Global coronavirus infections soared past 25 million on Sunday, as countries around the world further tightened restrictions to try to stop the rampaging pandemic.   


A million additional cases have been detected globally roughly every four days since mid-July, according to an AFP tally, with India on Sunday setting the record for the highest single-day rise in cases with 78,761.   


The surge in India, home to 1.3 billion people, came as the government further eased lockdown restrictions on the weekend to help ease pressure on the reeling economy.   
On the other side of the world, Latin America -- the worst-hit region -- was still struggling with its first wave, with Covid-19 deaths in Brazil crossing 120,000, second only to the United States.   
Brazil’s curve “has stabilised now, but at a very dangerous level: nearly 1,000 deaths and 40,000 cases per day,” said Christovam Barcellos, a researcher at public health institute Fiocruz.   
 Nearly 843,000 people have died of Covid-19 globally, and with no vaccine or effective treatment available yet.
