Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 11,620,000, with over 538,000 deaths and 6,303,000 recoveries.

Daily confirmed cases continue to rise across the world.

Of the top ten most affected countries, five countries are in North and Latin America. Brazil, Chile, Peru, Mexico and the US contribute roughly 45% to the total confirmed case burden in the world.

In Asia, India is continuing to report the high number of daily confirmed cases.

In the majority of countries in Europe, daily confirmed cases continue to decrease.

The UK has been the most heavily affected country in Europe with highest number of Covid-19 deaths.

The number of cases and deaths in the UK are in sharp decline in recent days.

However, localized outbreaks have been reported which may be an indicator of a potential resurgence of cases.
