Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 10,717,000, with over 516,000 deaths and 5,501,000 recoveries.
Worldwide, total confirmed cases and total deaths continue to rise.
This is primarily driven by increasing trends observed in Latin America, North America, and Eurasia.
More specifically, the US, Brazil, Russia, and India contribute over 50% of cases to the global confirmed case burden, and over 40% of deaths to the global death toll.
In the Eastern Mediterranean region, daily confirmed cases and daily deaths continue to surge, with Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Pakistan at the forefront.
To date, these three countries alone contribute nearly 60% of cases to the total confirmed case burden in this region.
Additional countries to watch include Egypt, Iraq, and Oman.
