The number of confirmed cases in the world has now surpassed the 9 million mark as 9,051,398 cases have been recorded. New cases amounting to 130, 382 were recorded in the past 24 hours. The biggest increase was from North and South America with over 116,000 new cases, according to a daily WHO report on Sunday.

Brazil, the world’s No 2 coronavirus hot spot after the United States, officially passed 50,000 coronavirus deaths, with a 50,659 death toll. It has 1,086,990 total number of cases, according to the country’s health ministry.

Health officials in China reported 22 new virus cases in Beijing, where they have tested more than two million residents as they seek to contain a wave of new infections linked to a wholesale market in the capital.

In Africa, 9,312 new cases were recorded to bring the total number of cases to 309, 153. Countries which include South Africa, Egypt, Ghana, Nigeria and Algeria make up for nearly 70% of confirmed cases in Africa.

South Africa is nearing the 100 000 case mark in the Covid-19 pandemic, after 4 621 new cases were reported, to bring the total number of case to 97, 302 and the country is nearing the 100 000 mark. The Covid-19 pandemic is reaching its “peak” in the Western Cape and the elderly and ill have been urged to lock down. More than 350 people died in the past week in the province. The Western Cape still leads in the number of Covid-19 cases, with just over half the national total – 52.9%. Gauteng follows, with 21.4%, and the Eastern Cape, with 16.2%.

According to the country’s statistics more men have so far succumbed to Covid-19 as opposed to women and the toll the virus is taking on men is seemingly no different anywhere else in the world.

Malawi recorded an increase by 110 cases to bring the total number of cases to 730 and 3 new deaths were recorded hence the death toll is now at 11.

Zimbabwe now has 489 cases of the pandemic, 6 deaths and 64 recoveries. Of the two deaths that were reported, one was from the Bulawayo province and the other fatality recorded was from the Midlands province and both were females.
