Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 167,345,000, with more than 3,474,000 deaths and over 116,767,000 recoveries.

The US continues to hold the lead as the most heavily affected country worldwide, followed by India and Brazil.

However, the cases in the US have been in steady decline and India is also reporting a decrease in daily new cases in recent days.

Brazil, on the other hand, is continuing to report a high number of new daily cases.

Latin America remains the most heavily affected continent in the world with Argentina, Colombia, and Brazil reporting a high number of daily new cases and deaths.

India has reported 9,000 total cases of mucormycosis (a very rare type of fungal infection) during this pandemic.

This fungus is deadly with a 50% fatality rate if not treated promptly. Most of the cases had recently recovered from Covid-19, treated with steroids, and were diabetic.
