The worldwide number of reported virus cases, which crossed the 31 million mark last Sunday, now stands at 33.3 million just one week later, while the number of deaths, which reached the 900,000 mark just two weeks ago, is now over 1 million, based on data compiled by Worldometer, a service that aggregates and makes available world statistics.

The United States, Brazil, India, and Mexico account for more than half of the total.

Meanwhile, the death toll in the United States, which had crossed the 200,000 mark on Tuesday, now stands at almost 210,000.  More Americans have died as a result of this pandemic than died in the First World War, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, Iraq, and Afghanistan – combined.

There are now over 7.67 million active cases across the globe. In addition, almost 25.65 million people have recovered.

The United States, which crossed the 7 million mark in coronavirus cases on Monday, currently has 7.33 million reported cases.

Health officials in Wyoming reported 168 new daily cases on Sunday, a record for the Equality State. More cases have been announced in Wyoming over the last week than in any other seven-day period during the pandemic.

India continues to have the second highest number of coronavirus infections in the world after the United States, based on reported figures, currently has 6.07 million cases, after reporting 95,574 new cases on Monday, although the number of deaths per million members of the population remains low at 69.   By comparison, that figure in the United States is 632, and it is 618 in the United Kingdom and 666 in Brazil.

Brazil remains in the number 3 slot, with 4.73 million cases, while Russia now has 1.15 million cases, putting it in fourth.

Colombia overtook Peru to be in the number 5 slot, now reporting 813,056 cases, while Peru now has 805,302.  Peru, however, leads in the number of deaths per million members of the population, with 975, with the exception of tiny San Marino, where the population is too small for the figure to be statistically significant.
