Covid-19 spread showing signs of slowing

By Paul Dennis

Confirmed cases of Covid-19 are rising towards the two million mark – but the speed at which the virus is spreading has showed signs of slowing down.

The number of global cases rose by 70,640 yesterday, taking the total to 1,917,319. The number of deaths was up by 5,391 to 119,482.
Both new cases and new deaths fell for the third day in a row – although that might be partly a result of slower reporting over the Easter holiday weekend.
Deaths in the USA were up by 1,509, compared to 2,108 three days earlier.
