14 December

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 72,352,000, with over 1,614,000 deaths and 47,334,000 recoveries.

Total Covid-19 cases continue to rise across the world, with the US, India and Brazil remaining as the top three most heavily affected countries. Daily increases in the number of new confirmed cases are observed in both the US and Brazil, while declining in India. Despite the decrease in India’s daily cases, concerns rise over the seasonal deterioration of the air quality within Northern India’s urban areas and its potential to worsen the outcome for those with Covid-19.

On Saturday 11 December, 2020 the US Food and Drug Administration issued the first emergency use authorization (EUA) for the Covid-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer and BioNTech. Pfizer plans to have 6.4 million doses ready for the US in its first rollout round due in late December.
