13 April

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 136,740,000, with more than 2,948,000 deaths and 90,320,000 recoveries.

The US, India and Brazil remain the most affected countries by Covid-19 globally.

Europe passed the grim milestone of one million Covid-19 deaths on Monday.

France, Russia and UK lead Europe for countries most affected by the pandemic.

Russia has the highest 7-day average of new confirmed cases at approximately 6,800, although this is trending downwards.

The UK and France have rates of 1,000 and 500 respectively and are also decreasing from recent weeks.
The UK continues its successful roll out of vaccines across the country with vaccination rate reaching 570 per 1,000 people (60% of total population).

This comes as the Prime Minister eased lockdown restrictions on Monday.

England becomes the latest Nation to offer the Moderna vaccines, providing an alternative to the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines, due to links with rare blood clots.

All individuals ages 50 and above have now been offered the first dose of Covid jabs as the country prepares to improve its economy in the coming weeks.
