GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Global Covid cases pass 73.6 million – EMA vaccine approval meeting pulled forward

By Paul Dennis

16 December

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 73,613,000, with over 1,638,000 deaths and 41,732,000 recoveries.

Despite having a high number of total cases in India (9,932,547), the number of deaths and subsequent death rate is lower than that seen in Brazil and the US, at 106.6 deaths per 1,000,000 population as opposed to 874.6 and 929.3 deaths per 1,000,000 respectively.

Doubt remains as to whether this low rate is due in part to India’s relatively young population or potential under-reporting of Covid-19 related deaths.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) is set to meet sooner than planned to consider approving a vaccine.

The regulator will now meet on 21 December to discuss whether the German-developed Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine should be rolled out across Europe.
