Covid-19 daily report: Cases rise again after holiday weekend

By Paul Dennis

16 April

Daily deaths from Covid-19 in the US have risen to record levels for the second day in a row.

There have now been more than two million confirmed cases across the world – with both cases and deaths surging yesterday.

That followed a drop in the figures during and just after the Easter weekend. The drop may have represented less efficient reporting during the holiday period rather than a “true” fall in cases.

While the US is now seeing by far the most daily deaths, there are signs the UK may be joining Italy and Spain in having passed the peak.
