GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Global Covid cases near 145 million – remarkable vaccine uptake in UK

By Paul Dennis

23 April

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 144,770,000, with more than 3,073,000 deaths and over 95,670,000 recoveries.

Covid-19 cases are rising alarmingly in South Asia, Middle East, and Latin America.

India has broken a global record set by itself for the highest number of daily new cases.

Numbers of countries such as the UK, the US, and Canada have imposed a restriction on passenger flights from India.

Two of the largest countries in Latin America, Brazil and Argentina, continue to report high numbers of daily new cases and deaths.

In England, vaccine uptake in 50 years and older population was 95%.

Considering the level of vaccine hesitancy anticipated in the developed countries, near-universal vaccine uptake in England is remarkable.

It also shows that the anti-vaccine movement was not as successful as anticipated in the UK.
