Numbers Contracting Coronavirus Worldwide Exceeds 9 Million

The number of people diagnosed with Covid-19 across the world has passed the nine-million mark.

More than 183,000 new cases were reported to the World Health Organisation on Sunday – the most in a single day.
In total, almost 470,000 people have died of the disease.

Meanwhile, experts have found men appear to produce higher levels of Covid-19 antibodies than women.
A UK trial's been collecting blood plasma from people who've already recovered from the virus to treat ill patients.
Scientists found 43 percent of male donors had plasma rich enough in antibodies to take part, compared with 29 percent of women.
