GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Global Covid infections pass 67.7 million – vaccinations begin in UK

By Paul Dennis

8 December

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 67,719,000, with more than 1,547,000 deaths and 43,639,000 recoveries.

Across the world, daily confirmed cases continue to rise.

Of the top ten most affected countries, only two continue to report consistent, increasing trends in daily confirmed cases: the US and Russia.

However, these countries contribute roughly 40% to the top ten total confirmed case burden, and just over 25% to the global total confirmed case burden.

In the UK, the first mass vaccination effort has been launched; this positions the UK as the first Western nation to vaccinate its citizens, and marks a significant turning point in the pandemic.
