Epidemiologist report: Cases rise in Latin America, Russia and India

By New Statesman

Comment from Bishal Bhandari, senior epidemiologist at GlobalData:

“Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 4,720,000, with over 316,000 deaths and 1,750,000 recoveries.

“Latin and North America continue to see a rise in daily confirmed cases whereas in Europe, the daily confirmed cases continue to decrease in majority of the countries. Russia continues to experience a surge in cases, ranking second in the world behind the US. India, the second most populous country in the world, has seen a rise in daily confirmed cases, which has prompted it to extend the lockdown by two weeks.

“This pandemic has also hit indigenous population in Brazil, raising concerns about how quickly the disease had spread through remote vulnerable communities with poor access to healthcare facilities.”
