Global Covid cases near 175 million as US trends down

11 June

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 174,870,000, with more than 3,770,000 deaths and 125,000,000 recoveries reported.

China and US continue to lead the world in the number of Covid-19 vaccine doses administered.

The US’ daily confirmed cases continue to trend downwards in recent weeks.

India is also among the top countries for total vaccine doses administered; however, the country is still reporting high daily confirmed cases and deaths.

Despite this, over 27 million individuals recovered from Covid-19 in India.

Chile’s government has announced an immediate lockdown in the capital of Santiago amid the upwards trend of Covid-19 cases.

On Thursday, Chile reported 7,716 new daily cases and has a seven-day average of over 4,700 new daily confirmed cases over the past week.

Criticism of the government focused on the triumphalism over the vaccine rollout and loosening of COVID-19 restrictions too fast.
