GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: US leads the World in active Covid cases as deaths there exceed half a million

By Paul Dennis

23 February

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 111,824,000, with more than 2,476,000 deaths and 75,051,000 recoveries.

Globally, the US leads the world in active cases with nearly four times as many active cases than the UK, the next leading country.

Following the UK is France, Spain, the Netherlands, and Brazil, respectively.

The US also leads the world in total Covid-19 deaths with more than half a million fatalities, and is followed by Brazil and Mexico to round out the top three countries while India, the UK, Italy, France, Russia, Germany and Spain trail these countries in Covid-19 deaths.

In France, which has been ravaged by the UK variant, high infection rates have hindered efforts by the government to ease coronavirus restrictions.

Nice, a hotspot for new infection, will go into lockdown for the next two weekends.

Germany faces a similar issue as schools reopened on Monday and will likely prolong its shutdown.
