GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Covid-19 cases near 9.3 million world wide – Saudi Arabia restricts Hajj – infections rise in Iran

By Paul Dennis

24 June

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 9,273,000, with over 477,000 deaths and 4,645,000 recoveries.

Latin America, the US, India and Russia report about 70% of the global daily confirmed cases.

Sweden reported nearly 2,000 newly confirmed cases yesterday, accounting for the highest numbers in Europe.

In Portugal, several regions are hesitant to lift current restrictions as new cases emerge.

Saudi Arabia, the fifth most affected country in Asia, officially restricted the Hajj, an annual pilgrimage to Mecca.

As a result, foreigners are no longer allowed to attend the ceremony this year.

In Iran, several provinces continue to report high numbers of newly confirmed cases.
