After 6 months of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic officially began, during this day of Sunday, June 28, the number of infections in the world exceeded 10 million.
The information provided by Worldometer indicates that in total 0.15% of the world population has been infected, in addition to the fact that the number of deceased has already exceeded 500 thousand people throughout the planet.
These figures come amid fears of an outbreak of the disease in various countries of the world where restrictive measures such as social distancing or quarantines have already been lowered.
The most affected country with the highest number of cases in the world continues to be the United States, which has a total of 2.5 million infected and reaches the figure of 127,000 deaths since the pandemic began in the country.
What’s more, during the last few days there has been an increase in cases in some southern states of the country, such as Florida and Texas, so in these places measures have been taken to prevent outbreaks, among which are restrictions of companies and bars in the affected areas.
When taking these measures again, many people will have to stay at home, a plan contrary to the current policy of President Donald Trump, who wants to revive the country’s economy as soon as possible.
On the other hand, health experts have indicated their concern about the situation in the country, due to an increase in positive cases after the tests and a considerable increase in hospitalizations and deaths in health services throughout the United States.
However, not only North America has had outbreaks, since in Germany the authorities have activated quarantines in the west of the country, after a gigantic outbreak that affected more than 1,300 workers in an animal company.
Countries such as Spain and Italy continue to lower restrictions after registering the lowest numbers of infections after the pandemic began earlier this year, reaching just 100 hospitalized patients today.
China has reported a rebound in the number of cases, after the information from the authorities that spoke of a flare-up in the city of Beijing.
The Health Commission in the Asian giant reported on 17 new infections in the capital, being classified as “the worst data of the week”.
South Korea has also experienced an activation of cases, but it continues to be less. According to the information provided by the authorities, a total of 51 new cases have been registered, of which 35 are from the area of Seoul, the capital of the country.
The economic situation that affects the country forced the authorities to lower the preventive measures at the end of April, but the experts exhaustively ask to reactivate the preventive measures.
Regarding Latin America, Brazil continues to lead with the highest number of infections and deaths from the disease, followed by Chile and Peru, which continue with a high sum for new infections registered every day.
In the case of Argentina, President Alberto Fernández has recently communicated that the country will take extreme prevention measures again after the considerable increase in cases that occurred in recent days, mainly in the city of Buenos Aires.
