GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: New Covid cases continue to exceed 2,000 a day in South Africa

By Paul Dennis

9 June

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 174,000,000 with more than 3,740,000 deaths and over 124,490,000 recoveries reported.

Peru, Hungary and Bosnia and Herzegovina have recorded the highest rate of deaths per 1 million population with 6,037, 3,321 and 3,153 deaths, respectively.

Among countries that have had over 3,000 deaths per million population, Peru has the highest case fatality rate at 9.41% followed by Boznia and Herzegovina (4.6%) and Hungary (3.7%).

Mortality comparisons between countries are generally limited due to how each country define Covid-related deaths.

South Africa has recorded over 1,700,000 total confirmed Covid-19 cases as of Tuesday.

The country has been averaging over 2,000 new confirmed cases a day since early February and has been affected heavily by the pandemic.

More than one million senior citizens aged 60 years and above have been vaccinated under phase two as the country aims to control the spread of the virus.
