GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Global confirmed cases of Covid-19 over 7,925,000 – US most heavily affected

By Paul Dennis

15 June

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 7,925,000, with over 433,000 deaths and 3,780,000 recoveries.

The US still remains the most heavily affected country, reporting the largest number of newly confirmed cases and deaths worldwide.

Brazil follows the US, with the number of deaths now overtaking those seen in the UK and with total confirmed cases sharply increasing.

In Europe, all countries, excluding Poland and Sweden, are now past the first peak of transmission.

A cluster of new cases seen in Beijing linked to local transmissions found at the Xinfadi food market has led to lock-down measures being reintroduced.

Officials are concerned about an uncontrolled second wave. Chinese citizens are urged not to travel to the Capital.

New Zealand is thought to have eliminated the virus, with no current active cases and weeks since the last new case.
