Record One-Day Surge in Global Coronavirus Cases, 1 Million New Cases in Less Than 100 Hours

by sambit
corona cases surge across the world

On Friday, 17 July, the coronavirus infections across the globe crossed the 14 million mark, as per the Reuters tally. As this news came in, it also brought another, marking the surge of 1 million cases in less than 100 hours for the first time since the pandemic broke.

The first coronavirus case was reported in January, in China, and it took a quarter year to reach 1 million cases. But, it only took four days to raise the mark from 13 million to 14 million global coronavirus cases, from 13 July to 17 July.

The USA has over 3.6 million confirmed cases and still records a surge of the numbers in the COVID-19 infections. On Thursday, the United States recorded a daily surge of 77,000 new cases, while Sweden stands at 77,281 for the total number of cases to date.

Despite the rising numbers on a daily basis in the USA, there’s a cultural divide seen across the country over the debate of wearing masks to control the spread of the deadly virus. Wearing masks is a precautionary step all other nations are taking.

Talking about the views of President Trump and his followers, they have resisted a complete endorsement of masks and are looking forward to getting back to normal economic activity. There are also plans to reopen the schools regardless of the surging cases. Moreover, President Trump was seen wearing the mask for the first time since the breakout of the virus.

Updates from across the world

Other countries hit hard by the novel coronavirus have lowered their graph and initiating to ease lockdowns proposed to slow down the spread of the virus. However, there are some like Melbourne and Barcelona planning to implement the second round of local shutdowns.

According to the WHO, the total number of Covid-19 cases globally is almost triple that of severe influenza illnesses recorded in a year. The pandemic has taken over 590,000 lives in the last seven months, moving close to the upper range of influenza deaths reported by WHO worldwide. The first death due to novel coronavirus was reported in Wuhan, China, on 10 January 2020. The infections soon surged in Europe, moving to the United States and other world nations.

Over 2 million people have been tested positive in Brazil, including Jair Bolsonaro, the Brazilian President, and over 76,000 lives have been lost in the country.

India, on third in the list of hard-hit countries by Covid-19, has more than 1 million cases now. The country is marking an average surge of 30,000 new cases daily for the last week.

These countries acted as the main drivers behind the WHO on the Friday Report of a record one-day surge in the coronavirus cases on a global basis, almost 237,743.

Amid all this, the process of coronavirus vaccine is also running simultaneously in countries like the USA, Russia, and India. But, the day is far when we will have access to the vaccine to fight the virus.
