At 11am on Sunday, the WHO office in China reported that at least 5,042,330 people worldwide had been infected with the corona virus since the outbreak at the end of December 2019, according to an AFP report from GMT official sources.
More than 249,431,180 infections have been officially diagnosed since the onset of the epidemic. Most patients recover, but the more poorly assessed area retains symptoms for weeks or even months.
The figures are based on daily reports by health officials in each country. They exclude restorations made by certain statistical systems, which end in a higher number of deaths.
Taking into account the high number of deaths directly and indirectly associated with Covit-19, the WHO estimates that the outcome of the epidemic may be two to three times higher than officially recorded. Although screening is intensified in many countries, a significant number of less severe or asymptomatic cases remain undiagnosed.
As of Saturday, there were 6,306 new deaths and 411,296 new cases worldwide. Russia had 1,179 new deaths, followed by India (506) and Ukraine (449).
The United States is the most affected country in both deaths and cases, with 754,279 deaths for 46,461,779 cases, according to Johns Hopkins University.
The United States is followed by Brazil with 609,388 deaths and 21,874,324 cases, India with 460,791 deaths (34,355,536 cases), Mexico with 289,674 deaths (3,825,404 cases), and Russia with 801745 deaths (801745 deaths).
Among the worst-affected countries, Peru has the highest number of deaths compared to its population, with 608 deaths per 100,000 population, followed by Bulgaria (359), Bosnia (357), Macedonia (346), Montenegro (342) and Hungary (323).
GMT 1,525,388 deaths at 11 a.m. Sunday in Latin America and 1,424,434 cases (76,202,176 cases) in Europe, 56,8130,9491 deaths in Africa, 41,94,491 Cases), and Oceania 2,906 deaths (267 951 cases).
The assessment was carried out using data collected by AFP offices from competent national officials and information from the World Health Organization (WHO). Due to the corrections made by the authorities or the late release of the data, the 24-hour increase figures may not match exactly with the figures released the previous day.
