GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Covid-19 cases exceed 6.5 million – infections still on the rise in India – challenges in containment remain

By Paul Dennis

4 June

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 6,528,000 with over 386,000 deaths and 2,819,000 recoveries.

In India, a top affected region globally, cases continue to rise as the peak of disease spread seems as yet to have been reached.

New York still remains the top affected region by Covid-19, with more confirmed cases than the United Kingdom, India, Moscow, or France, which make up the remaining top five most affected regions globally.

Globally, the number of daily confirmed deaths may have reached its peak as the number of daily confirmed deaths has slowly been decreasing since the end of April.

Despite the strict social distancing measures enacted at the beginning of this pandemic the virus has continued to spread, offering a glimpse into the challenges remaining as economies around the world begin to reopen.
