GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: More than 372,000 Covid-19 deaths globally – cases rise in Brazil and Qatar – risk of second wave in US

By Paul Dennis

1 June

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 6,185,000 with over 372,000 deaths and 2,648,000 recoveries.

In Europe, Asia, and the US coronavirus has likely peaked as recoveries rise and the number of new infections decline.

However, in the US, protests swept the nation over the weekend leading to mass gatherings nationwide, creating potential hot-spots for disease spread.

Despite the positive trends seen in moving past the peak of the pandemic, the risk of a second wave remains high.

In Latin America the pandemic continues to spread. Brazil is now the fourth highest country in the world by death count.

As the largest country in South America it remains an area of major concern as cases continue to rise and the availability of testing and treatment remains limited.

Qatar currently has the highest incidence rate of disease in the world at nearly 2,000 cases per 100,000 population and is one of the hardest hit regions in the Middle East.
