An update from GlobalData Senior Epidemiologist Bishal Bhandari:

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 4,720,000, with over 316,000 deaths and 1,750,000 recoveries.

North and South America continue to see a rise in daily confirmed cases whereas in Europe, the daily confirmed cases continue to decrease in most countries. Russia continues to experience a surge in cases, ranking second in the world behind the US. India, the second most populous country in the world, has seen rise in daily confirmed cases, which has prompted it to extend the lockdown by two weeks.

This pandemic has also hit indigenous populations in Brazil, raising concerns about how quickly the disease had spread through remote vulnerable communities with poor access to healthcare facilities.
