GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Global Covid infections pass 37.5 million – India likely to outstrip US cases

By Paul Dennis

12 October

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 37,575,000 with over 1,077,000 deaths and 26,109,000 recoveries.

The US remains the most heavily affected country worldwide, though India is on track to surpass the US in the coming days.

With popular Hindu festivals, such as Dussehra and Diwali being celebrated in the coming months, India’s health minister has urged people to stay at home and avoid congregating in fear of the problem worsening.

Across Europe, countries continue to battle the virus, with France, Ukraine, and Poland all reporting record highs in daily confirmed cases over the weekend.

In Spain, the government has ordered a 15-day state of emergency in Madrid in an effort to bring the outbreak in the capital under control.
