GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Global Covid Cases near 164 million – vaccine shortage in India

By Paul Dennis

18 May

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 163,675,000 with more than 3,391,000 deaths and 112,371,000 recoveries reported.

The US continues to hold the lead as the most heavily affected country worldwide, followed by India and Brazil.

In the US, New York City is planning on holding its marathon in November but will limit runners to 33,000 instead of 55,000.

Vaccination efforts in India are facing challenges due to a shortage of vaccine supplies.

The shortage has left Delhi with only four days’ worth of supplies.

In Europe, Spain is hoping to open to travellers for the summer season now that the state of emergency has been lifted, and the EU is introducing a vaccine passport.

Denmark has already started using a passport called Coronapas.

Fully vaccinated individuals, those with a negative result in the last 72 hours, or those recovered from an infection in the last 180 days can get it.

Businesses like hair salons, massage parlors, and driving schools have reopened to customers with Coronanaps.

Restaurants have also opened indoor dining to customers with Coronapas.
