(NEW YORK) – A coronavirus novel pandemic has now killed more than 924,000 people worldwide.

Over 29 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The criteria for diagnosis – through clinical means or a laboratory test – have changed from country to country. Still, current numbers are believed to be much higher due to lack of testing, many unreported cases and suspicions that some national governments are hiding or minimizing the scope of their outbreaks.

Since the first cases were discovered in China in December, the virus has spread rapidly to every continent except Antarctica.

The United States is the most affected country, with more than 6.5 million cases diagnosed and at least 194,000 deaths.

California has the most cases from any U.S. state, with more than 749,000 people diagnosed, according to Johns Hopkins data. California is followed by Texas and Florida, with over 669,000 cases and over 654,000 cases, respectively.

Nearly 170 vaccine candidates for COVID-19 are being tracked by the World Health Organization, at least six of whom are in the crucial phase of three trials.

Here is how the news is unfolding on Monday. All Eastern times:
