GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Global Covid-19 infections pass 106.5 million – ‘worst in Europe’ UK nears 4 million

By Paul Dennis

9 February

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 106,555,000, with over 2,327,000 deaths and 70,572,000 recoveries.

The US, India, and Brazil remain firmly at the top of the global confirmed case count as Brazil (the third leading country) has more than double the UK’s confirmed cases (the fourth leading country) although the ‘worst in Europe’ UK is now nearing the unwanted figure of 4 million confirmed infections.

Following the UK are Russia, France, Spain, and Italy in that order.

However, these countries’ case counts are much more clustered, with a little over 1.3 million cases separating the UK and Italy.

Turning to Eastern Europe, Ukrainian President Zelensky has stated that his country’s situation has stabilized after several restrictions in January.

Poland has announced similar news and plans to ease restrictions later this week despite some cases of the B.1.1.7 strain having been detected in the country.

The Czech Republic has not been as fortunate as its PES epidemic system remains in the second-highest degree of alert.

Consequently the Republic’s lawmakers are discussing an extension of the national state of emergency beyond February 14.
