GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Global Covid cases show rapid rise to pass 143 million

By Paul Dennis

21 April

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 143,052,000, with more than 3,046,000 deaths and over 94,430,000 recoveries.

Covid-19 cases are rising rapidly across the world.

According to the WHO, the situation is alarming with several infection hotspots in Asia, Middle East, Europe, and Latin America.

France is reporting a high number of daily new cases and currently occupies 4th position in the world.

In South Asia, India is reporting a record-high number of daily new cases.

However, the cases are also rising sharply in neighbouring countries such as Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Daily new cases in the US have not declined like the UK and Israel, despite the high vaccination rate in the country.

The US has vaccinated 40% of its population compared to over 60% in Israel. The US is hoping that a high rate of vaccination will have a positive effect very soon.
