Coronavirus has been detected in more than 38 million people worldwide, according to Johns Hopkins University (JHU), which monitors the pandemic globally. One million more people worldwide have been infected in three to four days in the last few weeks.

More than half of the cases are reported by the three worst-affected countries: the United States, India, and Brazil.

In terms of the total number of infected people, the United States continues to be at the top of the imaginary ranking, with about 7.8 million infected. The second worst India has so far reported almost 7.2 million infected. Third, Brazil has registered over 5.1 million positive coronavirus tests since the spring.

Several European countries, including the Czech Republic, have been facing a significant increase in new cases in recent weeks.

The world has also surpassed a million deaths from complications of covid-19. So far, JHU has recorded a total of 1,084,336. The United States again registers the most deaths, almost 216,000.
