GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Global Covid-19 cases exceed 10.4 million with 509,000 deaths – lockdowns reinstated in Australian state of Victoria

By Paul Dennis

30 June

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 10,415,000, with over 509,000 deaths and 5,253,000 recoveries.

Across the world, daily confirmed cases continue to rise.

Of the top ten most affected countries, less than half continue to report increases in daily confirmed cases. However, of these, the US, Brazil, India, and Iran contribute roughly 70% to the top ten total confirmed case burden, and nearly 50% to the global total confirmed case burden.

Meanwhile, Australia reported its highest number of new infections since the end of April, with over 80 daily confirmed cases reported on Monday.

This is primarily driven by spikes in new infections observed across Melbourne, a city in Victoria, the second most populous state.

As a result, the government has reinstated lockdowns in this region.

While the government announced a three-stage plan in May to ease lockdown restrictions, these localized outbreaks may be an indicator of a potential resurgence.
