Europe remains the hardest hit continent with 2,637,546 cases including 195,975 fatalities, while the United States has 2,510,323 infections including 125,539 deaths.
At least 10,003,942 infections, including 498,779 deaths, have been registered around the world, according to a count at 0930 GMT based on official sources.
The daily tally of new confirmed cases has continued to top 150,000 since late June.
The data also showed there has been a surge of 3,18,418 infections from June 1 till 27.
The US leads the world in Covid-19 cases by far, accounting for well over a third of the global total of over 10 million since the virus emerged late past year in China.
It's among the more than half of USA states, particularly in the South and West, seeing spikes in COVID-19 cases - a dramatic setback to efforts to reopen and salvage badly battered economies.
The two countries accounted for over a third of all new cases in the past week.
In the U.S. state of Florida, Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has conceded there has been an "explosion" in new cases. Between June 21 and 27 the region registered 408,401 new cases, compared with 253,624 in the United States and Canada and 121,824 in Europe. The state's rapid reopening saw young adults flocking to beaches, boardwalks and bars.
Miami announced beaches will close over the July 4 holiday weekend and bars are also shutting their doors. Bars are also closing.
Trump had faced a backlash after insisting on a rally in Oklahoma a week ago despite virus concerns. Governor Greg Abbott, another Republican who resisted lockdowns, said Friday that if he could "go back and redo anything, it probably would have been to slow down the opening of bars".
