Brazil, where coronavirus infections were still on the rise, ranked No. 2 behind the U.S.in both confirmed cases and total deaths, with 1.3 million infections and over 57,000 deaths.
Meanwhile, fears of a new rise in coronavirus cases have grown in recent weeks after massive protests against racism and police brutality swept across the United States and several other Western countries, during which, in many cases, participants flouted social distancing rules.
Brazil and Russian Federation trail behind the US, with almost two million cases between them. The death toll stands at 125,480. As of Saturday evening, there were more than 9.89 million confirmed infections. France has so far recorded 29,781 deaths from COVID-19.
On Saturday, Florida reported more than 9500 new cases, up from nearly 9000 on Friday, the previous record.
