Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 63,359,000 with more than 1,400,000 deaths and 40,600,000 recoveries.

Since the beginning of November, the total confirmed cases in the US increased by 46.12% and the new daily confirmed cases averaged over 14,000 per day. This is 2.3 times higher than the previous month.

There has been a slight reduction over the past 10 days.

However, unlike European countries, the US does not have unified restriction measures across the whole country.

Therefore, the holiday season is expected to result in an uptick in the number of new cases.

In Europe, the total number of confirmed cases in Belgium and Czechia account for over 5% of their populations.

This is high when compared with total confirmed cases making up just 0.04% of the US population.

New daily confirmed cases are increasing in eastern Europe.

Lithuania reported new confirmed cases linked to a mink farm.

The total confirmed cases in Lithuania are now four times higher than a month ago.
