Worldwide the Covid-19 cases and recoveries and trending upwards while deaths remain low.

While the United states still has the highest number of cases, they have been trending downwards since July.

This means we expect to see many more cases from India in the coming weeks.

The United Arab Emirates has seen a continuous rise in cases since August but with a steady decline in the positive test rate since its peak in June.

This rise is most likely due to increased testing with the UAE having the highest rate of testing per thousand people worldwide.
