The number of coronavirus cases across the world continues to increase rapidly, with the world’s total number of confirmed Covid-19 cases currently at 47,272,728.

The global death toll from the novel coronavirus surpassed 1.2 million, with the States holding the highest number of deaths from the virus.

The 31 US states have reported at least one record-high day of new coronavirus cases in the past month, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. There are at least 9,549,011 coronavirus cases in the US and at least 236,893 people have died. The United States’ top five records in daily cases all occurred within eight days, an upward trend that could strain hospital capacity. The number of new COVID-19 cases in the United States hit another record high last week, rising 18% to more than 575 000, while deaths inched up 3%, according to a Reuters analysis of state and county reports.

The number of new cases reported each week has risen for four straight weeks, with the biggest increases seen in the last two weeks. Texas reported the most new cases last week with over 45 600, followed by Illinois, which has half as many people, with over 44 500 new cases.

A total of 17 states had a positive test rate of over 10%. The World Health Organisation considers rates above 5% concerning because it suggests there are more cases in the community that have not yet been uncovered.

As cases in Europe spiral, France, Germany, UK and Belgium have gone into partial lockdowns. England will enter a new lockdown from Thursday 5 November. Italy also plans to further tighten restrictions. As Europe and North America continue to see new spikes in Covid-19 infections, the World Health Organization’s chief has said it’s not too late to bring the virus under control.

A mass testing campaign in China’s tightly-controlled western region of Xinjiang has revealed the country’s worst coronavirus outbreak in months. The total number of infections in Xinjiang now stands at 59 symptomatic cases and 236 asymptomatic cases. It’s the country’s biggest coronavirus cluster since more than 180 infections were reported in the capital Beijing in June.
