The coronavirus has killed more than 100,000 people in Europe, nearly two thirds of the overall global death toll, according to an AFP tally Saturday at 1800 GMT.
With a total 100,501 deaths out of 1,136,672 infections, Europe is the hardest-hit continent by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has killed 157,163 worldwide.
Italy and Spain are the hardest-hit countries in Europe, with 23,227 and 20,043 fatalities respectively, followed by France with a death toll of 19,323 and Britain with 15,464.
Worldwide, at least 2,281,334 people have tested positive to being infected with the coronavirus.
The number of detected cases, however, only reflects a fraction of the actual number of infections, with many countries testing only those cases requiring hospital care.
