GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Covid cases decreasing in US and India

By Paul Dennis

23 June

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 179,232,000 with more than 3,884,000 deaths and over 129,791,000 recoveries reported.

The US, India, and Brazil occupy the first, second, and third positions, respectively for total confirmed Covid-19 cases.

In terms of seven-day average cases reported, Brazil leads these three countries with 73,300, followed by India at 56,500 and the US at 13,700.

India has seen a 27% decrease in cases reported since last week and the US has seen a 14% decrease, whereas Brazil’s case numbers remain unchanged.

In Southeast Asia, Indonesia continues to be the worst affected country.

Its total cases and total deaths, at just over 2 million and just over 55,000 respectively, are the highest in the region.

The seven-day average cases reported was almost 13,000, an increase of 55% from last week, and on Monday the country reported 14,535 cases, which is its highest one-day total to date.

Experts suggest that this recent surge is caused by increased travel during the Eid al-Fitr holiday period, as well as increased prevalence of the more transmissible Delta variant.

South America’s reported cases remain high.

In this region, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Peru, and Chile have the highest number total confirmed cases reported, respectively.

Brazil, Colombia, and Argentina report a seven-day average of more than 18,000 cases while Chile and Peru report a seven-day average of more than 3,700 cases.

Brazil has reported a 26% increase in daily cases over the last 14 days.

Meanwhile, Colombia’s reported daily case numbers have increased by approximately 9% over the last 14 days.

Both Peru and Chile have seen around 20% decreases in daily cases reported over the last two weeks and Argentina has seen a 34% decrease.

In Colombia, protest leaders have agreed to pause marches, as hospital networks collapse and ICU occupancy across the three largest cities reaches maximum capacity.
