GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Global Covid-19 infections pass 12 million – numbers rising fast in US, India and Brazil

By Paul Dennis

9 July

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 12,042,000, with over 550,000 deaths and 6,590,000 recoveries.

Daily confirmed cases continue to rise rapidly across the world driven mainly by the US, Brazil and India which are reporting high number of daily new cases.

Latin and North America remains the most affected region as Brazil, Chile, Peru, Mexico and the US contribute roughly 47% to the total confirmed case burden in the world.

Cases are in gradual decline in the majority of European countries.

South Asia which includes countries such as India, Pakistan and Bangladesh is one of the most populous areas in the world.

As these countries are reporting high numbers of new daily cases, with no indication that cases will decline in the near future, South Asia could be the next global pandemic hotspot after Latin America.
