Global Covid-19 cases top 126.6 million

With an alarming resurgence in Covid-19 infections , the global cases reached 126.6 million with 2.77 fatalities.

The total case count reached 126, 651,176 while the death toll from the virus mounted to 2,777,020 as of Sunday, said the data compiled by Johns Hopkins University (JHU).

The US has recorded 30,217,893 cases with 548,825 fatalities as of Sunday morning.

Brazil, which is the world’s second worst-hit country, has registered 12,490,362 cases while the death toll from the virus climbed to 310,550.

Brazil currently accounts for one-quarter of the entire world’s daily COVID-19 deaths, far more than any other single nation, and health experts are warning that the nation is on the verge of even greater calamity, reports AP.

The nation’s seven-day average of 2,400 deaths stands to reach to 3,000 within weeks, six experts told the Associated Press. That’s nearly the worst level seen by the U.S., though Brazil has two-thirds its population.

Spikes of daily deaths could soon hit 4,000; on Friday there were 3,650.

India’s total tally reached 11,908,910 and the death toll from the virus stood 161,240 on Sunday.
