(Reuters) – The number of cases of coronavirus in the world exceeded 14 million on Friday, marking the first time that the number of cases of a million cases has risen in less than 100 hours, a statistic told Reuters.
The first case of corona was registered in China in early January, and it took three months to reach one million cases. The cases jumped from 13 million cases, which were recorded on July 13, to 14 million cases in just four days.
The United States, which has more than 3.6 million confirmed cases, continues to witness massive daily jumps in its first wave of Covid-19 infection.
The United States recorded a world record daily number of cases exceeding 77,000 new cases on Thursday, while Sweden recorded 77,281 cases in total since the start of the pandemic.
Despite the high number of cases, there is a growing dispute in the United States over the use of gags to slow the spread of the virus, a preventive measure routinely taken by many other countries.
Other countries severely affected by the virus have slowed its spread and started easing its general isolation measures to slow the spread of the emerging virus while other regions such as Barcelona and Melbourne have begun implementing a second round of local public closures.
The World Health Organization said that the number of infections worldwide in the Coruna virus is almost three times the number of cases registered annually with acute influenza.
The pandemic has now claimed the lives of more than 590,000 people in about seven months, heading towards the upper limit of globally recorded annual deaths from influenza.
The first deaths were recorded on January 10 in Wuhan, China, before the number of deaths and deaths rose thereafter in Europe and later in the United States.
The Reuters count, which is based on government reports, shows the disease has accelerated further in the Americas, which account for more than half of the cases and half of deaths globally.
The tests showed that more than two million people were injured in Brazil, including President Jair Bolsonaro, in addition to more than 76,000 deaths.
India, the only other country with more than a million cases, has seen an average of 30,000 new cases per day during the past week.
These countries are the main driver behind the World Health Organization’s announcement of a record daily increase in global cases of corona infection of 237743 cases.
