In Europe, more than 15 million infections with the novel coronavirus have already been detected. Worldwide, more than 55 million cases of infection have been recorded since the beginning of the pandemic, according to a census by the news agency AFP based on information provided by authorities today.
In terms of the number of infections, the 52 European countries are the most affected region in the world – ahead of Latin America and the Caribbean (12.1 million) and Asia (11.5 million). Meanwhile, the number of registered infections in the U.S. has risen to more than 11 million, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
However, the spread of the virus seems to be slowing down in most European countries. In the past seven days, an average of about 265,000 new infections per day were registered in Europe. This represents a decrease of nine percent compared to the previous week.
