By Paul Dennis

22 September

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 31,358,000 with over 965,000 deaths and 21,523,000 recoveries.

The US, India and Brazil remain top three worst-hit countries.

The US is approaching 200,000 total deaths due to Covid-19.

Several states, among them Wisconsin, Utah , Texas, and North Dakota, have reported an upward trend in new daily cases.

The CDC has removed recommendations regarding airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 from their webpage.

A previous draft posted to their website included information that the virus could remain airborne and be transmitted to people more than six feet away.

New daily cases in the UK have been increasing since mid-August and it is experiencing a second wave of Covid-19.

The UK has introduced new measures to curb the spread of the virus: pubs, bars, and restaurant will close at 10pm.

People who can work from home are asked to stay home and people are required to wear masks in shops and indoor restaurants except when eating.

Colombia remains the worst-hit Latin American country despite seeing a downward trend in new daily cases.

The country reports over 770,400 total confirmed cases, followed by Peru with 768,800 total confirmed cases.
