GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Global Covid cases pass 172 million

04 Jun 2021 (Last Updated June 4th, 2021 15:02)

4 June

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 172,161,000, with over 3,701,000 deaths and 122,199,000 recoveries.

China has administered the most vaccines globally, with over 704,800,000 vaccines to date.

Following China is the US with over 296 million shots administered and India with over 215,600,000 shots.

Lagging behind these countries are Brazil, the UK, Germany, Italy, France, and Mexico.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees warned that the Asia and Pacific region may be at additional risk for Covid-19 infections as the Delta (B.1.617.2) variant of concern that devastated India in early May has been detected in 62 countries since 1 June 2021.

There is a similar worry in the US, as according to a report by Outbreak.info the variant was responsible for 1,400 new cases in the US as of 25 May  and may be even more transmissible than the B.1.1.7 variant originating in the UK.
