GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Global Covid-19 infections exceed 23.4 million – India cases pass 3 million

By Paul Dennis

24 August

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 23.4 million with more than 800,000 deaths and 15,139,454 recoveries.

Across the globe, Covid-19 total confirmed cases continue to increase, with the US, Brazil, and India still taking the lead as the most heavily affected countries.

The UK has seen local lockdowns in areas such as Aberdeen, Manchester and Leicester, in an effort to prevent a second wave of infections.

In Brazil, Sao Paulo is the worst hit region, with over 730,000 total confirmed cases now reported.

Health inequalities and a response criticized for being too economy focused, has led Brazil to have the second highest death toll, after the US.
