By Paul Dennis

2 December

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 64,007,000 with over 1,483,000 deaths and 41,170,000 recoveries.

A mild downturn of new confirmed cases continues in the top ten most affected countries. However, new confirmed deaths are increasing in Russia and the US.

The new confirmed case numbers in Germany have fallen by half since early November.

However, there is no significant decline in the number of new daily confirmed deaths.

Today, the UK authorized the use of Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine for mass rollout.
