Covid-19 has record of cases in a 24h in the world and alerts for second wave


In total, 404,758 new infections and 6,086 new deaths were declared.

More than 400,000 new cases of covid-19 have been registered in the world in the last 24 hours – points out an AFP balance sheet prepared on Friday (16), based on official sources.

In total, 404,758 new infections and 6,086 new deaths were declared.

This increase in the number of reported cases in the world is partly explained by the increase in the number of tests performed since the first wave of the pandemic in March and April in the world.

In Europe, as well as in the United States and Canada, the number of detected cases progressed strongly in one week, 44% and 17%, respectively, compared to the previous week.

The maximum number of cases recorded since the start of the pandemic was reached on Thursday in Europe, with more than 150,000 new cases in the region.

Several countries on the continent estimate that they are already in a second wave.

The number of registered deaths is still far from the levels reached in April (more than 4,000 daily cases were detected as an average). After a slowdown in the summer (less than 400 deaths a day in July), last week, the region’s numbers gradually rose again, however, with an average of 1,000 daily deaths.

In the United States, where the number of reported cases dropped in September after a peak in mid-July, contagions rose again, with an average of more than 50,000 new cases daily in the past seven days, and a peak of more than 70,000 yesterday.
