Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 10,499,000, with over 511,000 deaths and 5,377,000 recoveries.
In the majority of countries in Europe and Asia, daily confirmed cases continue to decrease, while North America and Latin America continue to see a rise in daily cases.
The US and Brazil primarily drive these increases due to the sheer magnitude of total confirmed cases that rank them first and second highest in the world, respectively.
Starting today, the European Union (EU) opens its borders to travelers from more than a dozen countries.
Several criteria have been set to determine which countries are safe. The criteria require that in the previous 14 days, confirmed cases per 100,000 citizens are similar or below that of the EU, and daily confirmed cases show a stable or decreasing trend.
The list of safe countries will be reviewed every two weeks.
