GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Global Covid-19 cases pass 9.6 million – more than 2 million in Latin America – sharp increases in Eastern Europe

By Paul Dennis

26 June

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 9,632,000, with over 489,000 deaths and 4,859,000 recoveries.

Worldwide, daily confirmed cases are increasing at a higher pace.

This is primarily driven by increases observed in countries with dense urban populations such as Brazil, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, South Africa, and Mexico.

Additionally, in Latin America, the number of total confirmed cases has tripled in the past month, now surpassing 2 million infections.

In Eastern Europe, sharp increases in daily confirmed cases are being reported indicative of a second peak.

Ukraine and Croatia both observed a daily record spike in cases, with more than 1,100 new cases in Ukraine, and nearly 100 new cases in Croatia.

This will be a region to watch as the increases may signal an oncoming wave of new infections.
