More than 9.1 million people worldwide have been proven to be infected with the novel coronavirus. A total of 472,300 patients died from or with the virus, according to Reuters data based on official figures released on Tuesday. The World Health Organization (WHO) fears that far more people than known have actually infected with the virus.

The USA, Brazil and Russia have the highest incidence of infection. In Russia, almost 600,000 people are now proven to be infected with the virus, the authorities in Moscow announced. Within 24 hours, 7,425 new infections were reported, bringing the total number to 599,705. The number of deaths related to the virus rose by 153 to 8,359.

In the USA, new infections had decreased in recent weeks, but twelve states reported record increases last week. More than 30,000 new infections were recorded on Saturday alone, the highest number since May 1. In total, more than 2.2 million people were diagnosed with the virus that can cause the respiratory disease Covid-19 by Monday. Over 120,000 Americans died.

In Brazil, where President Jair Bolsonaro initially dismissed the virus as a “minor flu”, more than one million cases of infection and around 50,000 deaths have now been reported. On Friday alone, more than 54,000 new infections were reported within 24 hours, more than ever before, said WHO expert Mike Ryan. He assumes that the actual number of infections is much higher because comparatively little testing is done in Brazil.

In Iran, more people died of Covid within 24 hours. A spokeswoman for the health ministry in Tehran said on Tuesday that 121 new deaths had been registered. This is the highest number since April 11th, when 125 people died. This means that 9,863 people have already died in the country with the most deaths in the region. With almost 2,500 new infections, the number of infections now stands at almost 210,000, according to the spokeswoman.

The virus is also spreading rapidly in India, which has the fourth highest number of infections. More than 425,000 infections were registered there recently. Around 14,000 people died as a result of the virus.

As of Tuesday morning there were 28 new infections in Austria, the majority of them in Vienna. In the federal capital, an additional 21 people tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, according to the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Health. So far there have been a total of 17,408 positive test results in Austria.
