The number of recorded coronavirus cases across the world is now over 250,000.

This is according to Worldometer, a website providing updates on the virus, on Friday.

There are 252,014 cases, 10,405 deaths and 89,055 recovered cases, as of the time of this report.

On Wednesday, the number of recorded coronavirus cases across the world was 200,000.

This implies that there has been an increase of 50,000 within 48 hours.

The worst-hit country is China with 80,967 cases; followed by Italy with 41,035 cases, and Spain with 19,980 cases.

The three countries are followed by Iran, Germany and USA.

Although China has recorded more cases than Italy, the death toll in the European country is higher than the number of deaths recorded in the Asian country.

Italy has recorded 3,405 deaths, while China has 3,248 deaths from coronavirus.

In Africa, cases of the virus have been confirmed in at least 27 countries.

The outbreak has led to several decisions by governments in the form of measures to limit the spread of the disease.

Such measures include border closure, airport shutdown, travel bans, school closure, and suspension of congregational prayers.
