GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Global Covid cases exceed 142 million as infections surge in Turkey

By Paul Dennis

20 April

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 142,135,000, with more than 3,030,000 deaths and over 93,620,000 recoveries.

Bahrain, Qatar, and Cyprus have the highest rate of daily new confirmed cases with 1000, 860, and 850 cases per million population respectively.

Countries in Europe, Middle East, South Asia, and Latin America are reporting a high rate of daily new cases and deaths.

India alone has contributed over two million daily new cases in the last seven days.

Turkey has reported on average over 50,000 daily new cases in the last two weeks.

Turkey had been relatively successful in controlling the spread of infection and had a lower death toll compared to similar size countries in Europe during the first wave.

As Turkey is struggling to control the surge in cases, this might not bode well for neighbouring countries such as Syria and Iraq.
