There are now over 32, 4 million cases of the Coronavirus pandemic after 314, 855 new cases were recorded yesterday.
The United States still leads in terms of the total number of positive cases with 7,18 million and has more than 207 000 deaths. While reported coronavirus cases are reaching record highs as Europe endures a “second wave,” deaths are still well below their peak in April.
Countries across Europe are reporting record Covid-19 numbers, while the daily reported death toll is only slowly starting to rise. Coronavirus cases reported across Europe reached a record high of 52,418 over a rolling seven-day average on Tuesday, according to CNN analysis of Johns Hopkins University data. But there were just 556 new deaths reported, compared with a height of 4,134 daily fatalities (from 31,852 cases) from the seven-day average on April 10. That compares with a seven-day average of 44,547 cases and 722 deaths on Tuesday in North America, which has a population of 366 million compared with Europe’s 750 million people. But Bulgaria, Croatia, Malta, Romania and Spain have all been seeing sustained death rate increases.
In the first week of September, the biggest proportion of new cases was still among 25- to 49-year-olds, according to the World Health Organization’s Europe director, Hans Kluge. But there was also a rise in p The United Kingdom has recorded 6,634 new coronavirus cases in the last 24 hours – the highest daily increase since April.
This brings the total number of cases confirmed across the country to at least 416,363. While confirmed Covid-19 cases and death rates remain low in many African countries, early results in some communities suggest a higher number of infections than those reported, said Dr. Matshidiso Moeti, the WHO Regional Director for Africa.
“Preliminary analysis suggests that over 80% of cases in Africa are asymptomatic,” she said during a press briefing Thursday.
The swift action of governments on the continent to impose early lockdowns, and the public’s general adherence to movement restrictions, created a “window of opportunity” to keep cases low, Dr. Moeti said. Since many countries have begun easing restrictions and opening economies back up, there has been an uptick of cases. But experts are unable to conclusively explain the low death rates on the continent.
The panel described probable factors such as a majority youthful population, the frequency with which many Africans spend outdoors and the less movement and interaction in rural areas, as potential explanations.
South Africa recorded 1,816 new cases to bring the total number of cases to 667,049. Deaths were up by 77 to make them 16,283. Total recovered cases are now at 595,916 and the recovery rate is now at 89.34% 27 new cases were recorded in
