GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Global Covid-19 infections pass 21.7 million with more than 776,000 deaths

By Paul Dennis

17 August

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 21,730,000 with 776,157 deaths and just over 13,690,000 recoveries.

The US continues to take the lead as the most heavily affected country, followed by Brazil and India.

Countries across Europe are in fear of experiencing a second wave, with many countries such as Spain and France starting to see a resurgence in cases as lock-down measures continue to relax.

Latin America is seeing cases rapidly rise in Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Argentina and Venezuela.

A high prevalence of chronic conditions and limited healthcare systems is creating added strain in this region.

India has now reported almost 51,000 deaths in the country, ranking them 4th on the list of most Covid-19 deaths worldwide.

Efforts are being made to increase testing in India as infections there pass 2.6 million.
