Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 35,865,000 with over 1,050,000 deaths and 25,004,000 recoveries.

The US, India, and Brazil account for over 53% of the world’s total confirmed cases and about 44% of total confirmed deaths.

While many US states report increases in daily confirmed cases, the number of daily confirmed cases in India continues to decline.

In Europe, over 6,337,000 total confirmed cases and 241,000 total deaths have been reported, resulting in a relatively high case fatality rate of 3.8% compared with other regions.
