GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Global cases of Covid-19 over 12,270,000 – record rise in South Africa – further spike in Hong Kong

By Paul Dennis

10 July

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 12,270,000, with over 555,000 deaths and 6,740,000 recoveries.

Worldwide, total confirmed cases and total deaths continue to rise.

This is primarily driven by high number of cases reported in North and Latin America, and South Asia.

More specifically, the US, Brazil, and India contribute approximately 45% of cases to the global confirmed case burden, and over 40% of deaths to the global death toll.

Cases are rising in Africa driven by record rise in daily new cases in South Africa.

Hong Kong kept the Covid-19 cases under control in the first wave of this pandemic.

However, a spike in new cases caused by local transmission have been reported in recent days, and Hong Kong is planning to suspend all the schools to control the outbreak.
