Over one million people have now died from the coronavirus pandemic, with over 33 million cases worldwide.
So far 1,000,502 people have died according to Worldometer , which calculates the totals from sources including governments and NGOs across the globe.
The Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Centre , which also collates worldwide totals, has a figure just shy of the million milestone at 995,352, but has a slightly longer lag time with its updates.
It comes after UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson criticised the lack of joined-up thinking from countries around the world in fighting coronavirus , as he called on leaders to come together.
