GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Global Covid cases pass 75 million – WHO scientists to visit Wuhan

By Paul Dennis

18 December

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 75,075,000, with over 1,664,000 deaths and 42,451,000 recoveries.

Total Covid-19 cases continue to rise across the world, with the US, India and Brazil remaining as the top-3 most heavily affected countries.

Daily increases in the number of new confirmed cases are observed in both the US and Brazil, while declining in India.

Within the US, California, Texas and Florida have the highest numbers of total confirmed cases, with California reporting a record 53,711 new cases on Wednesday this week.

An independent team of ten scientists from the World Health Organization will travel to the Chinese city of Wuhan next month to investigate the origins of Covid-19. The virus is thought to have come from a ‘wet-market’ in the city selling animals.
