There are now some 1.5 million confirmed cases of coronavirus across the world, with the United States and the United Kingdom suffering the highest number of deaths in a single day since the outbreak began.
But in countries including South Korea and New Zealand, there is evidence that lockdowns, testing, monitoring and quarantines can help slow the spread of the virus.
Data collected by Johns Hopkins University shows the 1.5 million people with COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, nearly 330,000 have recovered. More than 88,500 people have died with the US reporting 1,850 deaths on Wednesday, and the UK, 938.
