Global Covid cases exceed 92 million – UK death count nears 85,000 – worst in Europe

14 January

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 92,482,000 with over 1,981,000 deaths and 51,122,000 recoveries.

The US, India, and Brazil remain the top three most affected countries worldwide.

Within Europe, the UK continues to be the worst affected country reporting both the highest total number of cases at over 3,220,000 and the highest total number of deaths at over 84,900.

However, Greece and Italy have reported the highest case fatality rates in Europe at approximately 3.5% (compared to the 2.64% observed in the UK).

Paediatric hospitalization rates have been observed to vary across US states and have increased over the duration of the Covid-19 pandemic.

There are concerns over a potential misperception of the lower risk of severe disease in paediatrics being interpreted as no-risk, which may lead to increased participation in risky behaviour.
