The number of Coronavirus cases worldwide has now passed 10 million. Around 500,000 people have died from COVID-19-related illnesses. That's according to Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

The US still remains the worst-affected country, with the states of Texas and Florida re-introducing lockdown measures over the weekend.

Due to a recent increase in cases here in Slovenia, the government held a meeting to discuss its contingency plans should a 2nd wave of the virus become a reality.
