Recent spikes in cases have the fear of growing a “second wave” of pandemic, whereas the countries that have apparently passed the peak of the infection a few months ago, are experiencing new outbreaks. Here are some of the countries that experience a peak in infections:
The United States.
The coronavirus continues to expand in some us States – particularly those in the south and west of the country.
The number of cases in the country has reached a new record high Wednesday, with 45 557 reported diagnoses, according to a count by NBC News.
Texas, Utah, Arkansas and Arizona are among States that have seen an increase of hospitalizations for coronavirus, while California and Florida reported Wednesday their most important peaks of new cases of coronavirus, while Houston has stated that its beds in the intensive care unit were almost at full capacity.
Soldiers of the Bundeswehr dressed in full ipe are preparing to take samples of the throat and upon the inhabitants of the village of Saint-Vit in the following an epidemic of Covid-19 to the meat-packing plant of Toennies to close during the outbreak of coronavirus on 23 June 2020 near Guetersloh, Germany .
The epidemic of Gutersloh has led to the recommitment of the neighborhood Tuesday, and a neighbouring district has also been closed a few hours later, in order to contain any possible spread. Nevertheless, the epidemic (as well as other “major outbreaks” in nursing homes and retirement centers for asylum-seekers and refugees, some schools and an outbreak in a religious community) has been accused of having pushed the rate of reproduction or of the “R” of the virus in Germany up to 2.88 to the last weekend, his public health organization, the Robert Koch Institute, announced Wednesday.
Germany currently has 192 871 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and reported 8 933 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins university.
The number of infections has increased in the last weekend in Brazil, a country which now has the second largest number of cases of coronavirus in the world, with over 1.18 million confirmed cases and nearly 54,000 deaths.
The brazilian government headed by president Jair Bolsonaro has been accused of trying to hide the statistics on the coronavirus in the country and there has been an outcry earlier in June, when the brazilian ministry of Health has stopped publishing daily data on infections and deaths. It has resumed its publications after a decision of the supreme Court.
With nearly 55 000 new infections reported last Sunday, Brazil has experienced its strongest increase in infections day-to-day – although this is due in part to a delay in the declarations of the States of Bahia, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, thus adding to the data of the two days, The world health Organization has noted.
Supporters of the brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro protest in front of the headquarters of the army against the decision of the governor of Brasilia, Ibaneis Rocha, to prevent the crowd from attending rallies, in the midst of the new pandemic of sars coronavirus, in Brasilia, on June 14, 2020.
India has reported a record a record-breaking day in the case earlier Thursday, with 16 922 new cases of the virus. This figure was higher than the record of 15 968 new cases recorded yesterday. The virus has infected 473 105 people in India and killed at least 14 of 894, according to data compiled by the Johns Hopkins University.
Maharashtra, Delhi and Tamil Nadu are the States most heavily affected, according to data from the indian ministry of Health, representing approximately 60% of all confirmed cases in India. The increase in the number of cases to New Delhi, apparently because of the limited capacity of hospitals and research contacts, is of particular concern.
India has the fourth worst outbreak of coronavirus in the world, on the basis of the total number of confirmed cases, after the United States, Brazil, and Russia.
