As of the 7th of September coronavirus is continuing its spread across the world, with almost 27 million confirmed cases in 188 countries, and more than 880,000 people have lost their lives.
France and Spain have recorded their highest numbers of daily cases since the spring recently, and the WHO has warned of a possible resurgence of the disease in Europe in October and November.
The UK has recorded another steep rise in daily coronavirus cases, with a further 2,948 positive tests – and a further three deaths – reported on today. As you can see from the image in a month the UK has more than doubled its 7-day average for new COVID cases, from 877 per day to over 2,000 new cases per day.
The US has had more than six million cases of coronavirus, nearly a quarter of the world’s total. It saw an increase in the number of daily cases to record levels in July, but the numbers have fallen since then. With more than 188,000 deaths, the US has the world’s highest death toll.
