As of Thursday, more than 30 million corona viruses had been reported worldwide. According to the New York Times database. India, in particular, has recently made a significant contribution to the number, adding an average of more than 93,000 new cases a day in the past week.
Initially some of the worst-affected countries saw a decline in cases, but the number of newly reported infections is growing faster than anywhere else in the world as many countries have reduced their testing efforts. The average number of known new cases is now more than 250,000 a day. The world reached 10 million cases on June 28 and 20 million on August 10.
The United States has the highest number of cases in the world: more than 6.7 million. It is followed by India with over 5.1 million and Brazil with over 4.4 million. But in the last seven days, India has added more than 652,000 cases, more than twice as much as the United States and almost three times as much as Brazil over the same period. However, the number of recent cases per capita in India is much lower than the other two.
Nearly 200,000 people have died from the virus in the United States and 134,000 in Brazil. No other country has recorded 100,000 deaths related to the virus.
The United States ranks 11th in personal deaths, behind Brazil and Peru, Ecuador, Chile, Bolivia, Belgium, Spain and the United Kingdom. The virus is currently in large numbers in Latin America, covering eight of the 10 countries with the highest number of individual deaths in the last 10 years.
As of Thursday morning, at least 940,100 people had died worldwide, and the virus had been detected in almost every country.
