Maryland-based university's tally counted 3,009,611 confirmed infections and 131,594 fatalities, while 936,476 people have recovered from the disease.

The US continues to be worst-hit country with the highest number of cases and deaths worldwide, followed by Brazil and the UK.

Recent spikes in cases and hospitalizations forced many US states to pause their reopenings or reimpose new restrictions to curb the spread of the virus.

More than 36.8 million tests have been conducted so far.
