The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases around the world has passed the milestone of 10 million, according to Johns Hopkins University in the US.

The virus emerged in China late last year and spread across the globe.

It has led to almost 500,000 deaths.

Half the world's cases have been in the US and Europe.

Outbreaks are still spreading in many parts of the world, with one million new cases recorded in the last six days.

The US has reported a total of 2.5 million cases and 125,000 deaths with COVID-19 so far - more than any other country.

The country with the second-highest number of recorded cases is Brazil, with a total of 1.3 million, and deaths over 57,000.
