GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Global Covid cases pass 173 million – UK braces for another wave

07 Jun 2021 (Last Updated June 7th, 2021 13:17)

7 June

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 173,300,000, with more than 3,720,500 deaths and over 123,650,700 recoveries.

New confirmed Covid-19 cases continue to be on the rise globally but not as sharp as during the month of May.

Although the US maintains its lead as the most heavily affected country worldwide, the daily new cases reported were still declining since last week.

Like the US, India is also observing a decline in new daily cases in the early days of the month.

Elsewhere, Central European nations such as Hungary and Czech Republic are among the countries with the highest death rate per million population with 3,308 and 3,012, respectively.

In the UK, latest figures sparked debates in delaying the lifting of all restriction on the 21st of June.

Sir David King, a former chief scientific adviser to the government, has said that the current Covid-19 figures are evidence of another wave appearing.
