Covid-19: Over 25 Million Cases Worldwide

August 30, 2020

With the Covid-19 pandemic continuing to affect countries around the globe, the number of confirmed cases worldwide has now surpassed 25 million, with over 843,000 deaths worldwide, and the United States having the most confirmed cases and deaths in the world.

A CNN story said, “A return to campus for the new academic year has colleges and universities across the United States struggling to both contain outbreaks of Covid-19 and enforce policies meant to prevent its spread.

“At least 36 states have reported positive cases at colleges and universities, adding more than 8,700 cases to the country’s tally. More than 5.9 million infections have been recorded in the US, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.”

A BBC story said, “Universities in the UK are being urged to scrap plans for face-to-face teaching until Christmas in order to prevent a second wave of coronavirus.

“Academics’ union UCU said more than a million students moving around the country was “a recipe for disaster”. But university bosses say they have worked hard to plan for a safe return to all aspects of student life.

“It comes as daily recorded cases of coronavirus in the UK reached 1,715 in 24 hours, the highest since early June. Case numbers began edging up again in the UK in July, after falling in June – but are still much lower than the 5,000 new cases a day there were in April, at the peak of the epidemic.

“Experts say the increase in testing over recent weeks means more people with the virus are being detected.”
