Epidemiologist Daily Update

By Paul Dennis

15 April

Some 1,934,583 confirmed cases of COVID-19 have now been reported globally, and the number of deaths stands at 114,185. COVID-19 has now been reported on every continent except Antarctica.

In the past week, there has been a slowing down of new infections in some of the hardest-hit countries in Europe. Spain, in particular, has began to ease the tough lockdown restrictions as a result.

However, the UK continues to see high levels of new cases. The UK could end up being one of the worst-hit European countries in the COVID-19 pandemic.

The US has reported the largest number of both COVID-19 fatalities and infections so far, with over 23,649 deaths and 582,594 total confirmed cases.
