Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 11,840,000, with over 544,000 deaths and 6,340,000 recoveries.

Daily confirmed cases continue to rise across the world.

The total confirmed cases in the US cases have now reached nearly three million and  will continue to rise rapidly in the near future.

Brazil and India which are the second and third most affected countries are also reporting high number of daily new cases.

In the majority of countries in Europe, cases are in decline although localized outbreaks have been reported in some countries.

Israel was one of the few countries which kept the Covid-19 cases under control in the first wave of this pandemic.

However, cases have started to spike in the recent days cancelling the earlier achievement and the country has re-imposed a lock-down.
