There are now more than 5.6 million cases of Covid-19 that have been reported worldwide and   about 354,000 deaths. 2,498,730 cases have recovered globally.

The United States has passed the death toll of 100,000 with 1,745,803 confirmed cases and 490,130 recoveries in less than four months.

Brazil’s death toll has surpassed those in USA. Brazil now has the second-highest number of cases globally, recording more than 1,000 deaths and 20,000 fresh cases on Wednesday.

In Africa, a total of 126,838 cases with 200 new cases and 52,784 recoveries have been recorded.

Egypt confirmed 910 new COVID-19 infections, raising the total cases registered in the country since mid-February to 19,666, said the Egyptian Health Ministry.

It is the first time for COVID-19 daily infections in Egypt to exceed 900, after there were over 700 daily cases in the past eight consecutive days.

South Africa has the largest number of cases in Africa with 25,937 number of positive Covid-19 cases, 552 deaths and 13,451 recoveries. The number of tests conducted has risen to 634,996.

Zimbabwe’s covid-19 cases have risen to 132 and 25 have recovered with 4 deaths reported.

According to WHO, the COVID-19 pandemic is now a ubiquitous topic in global online conversations and “covid” ranks as the second most used word in all public English-language social media posts published in the past 30 days.

The term received 55 million public mentions and was only surpassed by the word “people”, with 57 million mentions.

The task of reaching global audiences with trustworthy and timely information is challenging in this tsunami of information – but more important than ever.

The COVID-19 information ecosystem is sensitive to new “conversation inputs”, such as news stories, influential statements, or new research findings. These inputs have a measurable impact on online conversations and can affect people’s behaviour and emotions.
The WHO Infodemics management pillar has been monitoring global English- language conversations on COVID-19 to detect early signals of growing interest and public engagement with constantly emerging narratives around COVID-19.

Regardless of whether these signals stem from trusted or unreliable sources they can be used to anticipate and intervene: what questions need answering or what myths need busting.


In early April, the weekly monitoring detected a 98% rise in the number of global posts that engaged with the conversation on COVID-19 immunity.
