Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 99,301,000 with over 2,131,000 deaths and 54,843,000 recoveries.

Confirmed Covid-19 cases in the US topped 25 million over the weekend.

The US continues to lead the world in Covid-19 cases followed by India and Brazil.

The UK and France have the most cases among the European region as cases continue their dramatic increase since late December.

Due to the new, more infectious, viral variants in both the UK and South Africa, and rising case numbers in Brazil, the Biden Administration will restrict non-US citizen travel from Brazil, Ireland, the United Kingdom, and much of Europe.

In addition, Mexican President Lopez Obrador has tested positive for the virus, underscoring the rising cases in Mexico, which also boasts the highest case-fatality ratio.
