GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Covid-19 cases continue to increase globally and now exceed 20.3 million – US, Brazil and India worst affected

By Paul Dennis

12 August

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 20,317,000, with over 742,000 deaths and 12,606,000 recoveries.

The top three most affected countries remain the US, Brazil and India.

Globally, cases continue to increase.

Mexico has the third highest death toll and health authorities have attributed the high death toll to several factors such as people putting off going to hospitals until they are severely ill.

Another factor is the large proportion of the population with underlying chronic conditions such as diabetes, obesity and hypertension.
