Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 33,389,000 with over 1,002,000 deaths and 23,177,000 recoveries.

The US, India, Brazil and Russia, remain the top four most affected countries in the world, combining for more than 57% of the total cases globally.

The US and Brazil together account for more than one third of all deaths.

Over the weekend Colombia hit more than 800,000 cases despite early efforts to curb the spread of the virus.

Reopening of restaurants, shops, and other businesses has contributed to the resurgence of disease and mitigated the initial response.

Cases are likely to surpass one million in Colombia in the coming weeks.
