Cases of the ongoing novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic have continued to rise since last week and have reached a million now.

According to worldometer, 82,929 new cases were reported on Friday taking the total number of Covid-19 cases across the world to 1,098,456.

The number is 3,065 higher than that of the previous day, which was 79,864.

A week ago, on March 28, the number of new cases worldwide was 66,761 and a week before that on March 21 it was 29,429.

Till now, the number of active cases stands at 810,371.

Of the active case 770,980 (95%) were identified to be in mild condition while the rest 39,391 (5%) have been marked as serious or critical.

At the same time, 228,923 (79%) people from across the world have recovered fully from the infection or were discharged from treatment.

The Covid-19 pandemic has claimed 59,160 lives since its discovery in December 2019.

In January, China effectively shut down Wuhan and placed its 11 million residents in effective quarantine after the novel coronavirus infection turned into an outbreak.

The virus is thought to have emerged late last year in a Wuhan market illegally trading wildlife. It can cause pneumonia, respiratory diseases, among others, and spreads between people in droplets from coughs and sneezes.

Till now, Covid-19, a disease caused by a new strain of coronavirus, has affected 205 countries and territories around the world and two international conveyances -- the Diamond Princess cruise ship harboured in Yokohama, Japan, and the Holland America's MS Zaandam cruise ship.
