GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: India second most affected country as global Covid cases pass 136 million

By Paul Dennis

12 April

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 136,064,00, with more than 2,937,095 deaths and over 89,944,436 recoveries.

The US, India and Brazil continue to occupy the top spots for the total confirmed Covid-19 cases.

India has overtaken Brazil and became the second-most affected country globally.

Of the three leading countries, Brazil remains the highest in case fatality rate at 2.6%, followed by the US and India at 1.8% and 1.2% respectively.

In Somalia, dramatic surges in Covid-19 cases in recent month cause concern, due to the country’s fragile health system.

Somalia was commended at the start of the pandemic with cases remaining below 100 new confirmed cases per day.

However, the country is now observing over 100 new confirmed cases per day since mid- February.

Somalia has received around 200,000 doses of Sinopharm vaccine donated by China over the weekend in hopes to slow down the pandemic in the horn of Africa State
