According tomedia BGR reported that the new coronavirus transmission map shows that although the European and American regions after the “curve flat” began to reopen the economy, but the global spread is deteriorating. According to new coronary outbreak statistics released by Johns Hopkins University, there have been more than 100,000 new cases of COVID-19 worldwide almost every day since May 21. As of the time of writing, the cumulative number of COVID-19 cases worldwide had exceeded 7.08 million. More than 2.8 million people have recovered and more than 405,000 have died from COVID-19 complications.
In early June, the number of new coVID-19 cases per day exceeded 130,000. In April, there were never more than 100,000 new cases per day. Part of the reason for the increase in the number of new cases may be the increase in testing. However, testing in some areas remains problematic, as has been the case in recent months, especially in the early stages of a new outbreak. However, the increase in the number of cases suggests that the virus has not disappeared as some areas have been able to reduce transmission.
Using the same data from Johns Hopkins University, CNN produced the following chart showing the progress of disease series on all continents since late January. The image shows how the COVID-19 “earthquake” was transferred from China to Europe and then to the United States. There is currently a surge in cases in Brazil, Latin America and the Caribbean. The number of cases in Asia has also increased in the past few weeks, and the COVID-19 outbreak in Africa appears to be far from peaking.
The World Health Organization explained earlier this week that the virus has not lost its effectiveness due to the mutation, but it has not become more dangerous. In other speeches, WHO Director-General Tan Desai noted that the Americas remain at the centre of the outbreak. “The Americas still have the highest number of cases. For weeks, the Americas have reported more cases a day than the rest of the world combined. He said. “We are particularly concerned about the accelerating epidemicin in many countries in Central and South America. “
Brazil reported more than 30,000 new cases on Thursday, the second time in less than a week that the country has exceeded that target. Brazil is currently the second country in the world with the highest number of COVID-19 cases, with nearly 691,000 cases, and has so far reported 36,455 COVID-19 deaths.
Since May 22, the number of new confirmed cases in the United States has been between 186,000 and 25,000 per day, and the number of cases reported Friday was close to 30,000. At this rate, the United States will reach 2 million confirmed cases in the coming days. More than 111,000 people in the United States have died from COVID-19 complications.
CNN noted that the spread of the new coronavirus is also accelerating in other regions, including the Middle East and Africa. The number of confirmed cases in Haiti, Iraq, Libya, Mozambique and Uganda doubles every week. Cases in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, India and South Africa double every two weeks.
