23 June

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 9,121,000, with more than 472,000 deaths and 4,548,000 recoveries.

Since early June, daily confirmed cases have increased worldwide, with the majority reported from Latin America, the US, Russia and India.

In Europe, the proportion of daily confirmed cases is less than 10% of the world, with Sweden and the UK reporting the highest number of daily confirmed cases.

In the UK, as the infection rate continues to fall, the government has eased restrictions for vulnerable individuals.

In Asia, countries with dense urban populations such as India, Pakistan and Bangladesh continue to report a high number of daily confirmed cases.

In Africa, daily confirmed cases are increasing steadily.

However, these cases represent about 5% of the global daily confirmed cases, with South Africa, Egypt and Cameroon reporting the highest numbers.
