Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 10,168,000, with over 502,000 deaths and 5,158,000 recoveries.

Worldwide, daily confirmed cases continue to increase.

In North America and across the world, the US maintains its place as the most affected country with over 2.5 million total confirmed cases, while Russia leads the Eurasian region with over 640,000 total confirmed cases, and Brazil leads the Latin American region with over 1.3 million total confirmed cases.

Meanwhile, India sets a record high with nearly 20,000 daily confirmed cases reported on Sunday.

This marks the country’s biggest one-day jump, and brings the total number of confirmed cases to about 550,000.

India is currently the fourth worst-hit nation in the world, following the US, Brazil, and Russia.

However, if India continues to experience a surge in cases, it will likely surpass Russia.
