By Paul Dennis

28 May

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 169,021,000, with more than 3,511,000 deaths and over 118,593,000 recoveries.

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

However, the daily new cases in the US and India have declined in recent days. Countries in Latin America are still the most heavily affected with a high number of daily new cases and deaths.

Uruguay is reporting over 1,000 daily new cases per million population.

The total number of Covid-19 cases has crossed 30 million in South Asia.

India is the most heavily affected country in Asia, but neighbouring countries such as Nepal, Bangladesh, and Pakistan are also suffering from the disease.

The vaccination rate in this region is also low compared to the US and Western Europe.
