GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Global Covid infections pass 69.7 million – Germany considers full lockdown

By Paul Dennis

11 December

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 69,704,000, with over 1,584,000 deaths and 44,986,000 recoveries.

In the majority of countries in the European, African, Eastern Mediterranean, South-East Asian, and Western Pacific regions, daily confirmed cases continue to decrease, while the Americas continue to see a rise in daily cases.

The US and Brazil primarily drive these daily increases, contributing approximately 40% of new cases to the global daily confirmed total.

In Germany, cases continue to surge with over 23,600 new coronavirus cases reported, and a record number of nearly 600 daily deaths reported earlier this week.

According to German officials, a full lockdown may be implemented for several days, possibly extending to weeks, following the Christmas holiday.
