Globaldata Epidemiologist Report: Global Covid cases pass 161 million – India struggles for vaccines

By Paul Dennis

14 May

Globally, the reported total confirmed cases of Covid-19 has reached over 161,224,000 with more than 3,346,000 reported deaths and 109,626,000 estimated recoveries.

New Covid-19 cases are reported to be rising in many countries across Asia, with India, Nepal, and Japan thought to be seeing the biggest increase.

The situation in India is showing little improvement with a record number of deaths reported in the country on Wednesday and only 2.8% of the population thought to be fully vaccinated.

State governments in India plan to buy vaccines from global companies as locally manufactured supplies run low.

Thailand saw its highest number of daily confirmed cases on Thursday, with the surge thought to be linked to outbreaks in two Bangkok prisons.

Further lockdown restrictions have been introduced to contain this third wave of the virus.
