26 April

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 147,220,000 with over 3,110,000 deaths and over 97,440,000 recoveries.

Uruguay, Cyprus, and Estonia have recorded the highest rate of daily new confirmed cases with 846, 773, and 378 cases per million population, respectively.

Although Uruguay and Cyprus are reporting high rates, both countries are observing a sharp downward trend in new cases per million population over recent days.

There is still no break for Latin American countries, as high rates of daily new cases and death remain consistent.

After receiving an urgent request from Delhi, The European Commission has activated its EU Civil Protection Mechanism, which aims to supply medicine and oxygen to India.

The current alarming epidemiological situation has resulted in various countries coordinating aid to the virus-hit country.

The outbreak has added pressure on President Biden to provide vaccines to other countries in need. Biden has warned that the US will not begin to do so until there are enough supplies at home.
