2 lac Coronavirus cases in 24 hours!
The World Health Organization (WHO), has reported a record number of 200,000 New Coronavirus cases in the past 24 hours. According to the WHO, in the past 24 hours, there were 212,326 Coronavirus cases reported all across the planet. WHO had previously reported the highest number of cases as being on June 28, 2020 and this was 189,077.
Since the past week, daily, there have been over 163,000 cases reported globally. But the word circulating is that the actual number of cases due to Coronavirus disease, could be far higher than what is being reported, as many countries are only carrying out tests on those patients who have been hospitalized or on those cases which are deemed to be very severe.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Head stated:
“More than six months into this pandemic, this is not the time for any country to take its foot off the pedal.”
WHO says that in the past 24 hours, the countries which have seen the most spike in the number of New Coronavirus cases, are Brazil, India and America.
The top 10 countries that have been hit the most by the Coronavirus pandemic are America, Brazil, Russia, India, Peru, Spain, Chile, United Kingdom, Mexico and Italy. On an average, globally, there are around 5,000 deaths taking place each day, because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
In this disastrous global scenario, the United Kingdom is now getting all set to get back to ‘normal’. On Saturday, July 4, 2020, the United Kingdom allowed the reopening of movie theaters, barbers shops and pubs.
Boris Johnson, British Prime Minister, said:
“Let’s not blow it now.”
And on his American Independence day address to the country, the President of America, Donald Trump declared:
“China’s secrecy, deceptions, and cover-ups allowed it to spread all over the world and China must be held fully accountable.”
At the time of this release, there were around 5.4 million deaths and about 11.5 million cases, because of the killer Coronavirus.
