The number of new coronavirus infections worldwide has reached its highest weekly level since the pandemic began. Around the world, an average of more than 935,000 infections per day were detected from Dec. 22-28. This was reported by AFP today with reference to authorities’ data.

With a total of 6,550,000 cases within seven days, the coronavirus is currently spreading at an unprecedented rate, according to the AFP count. The previous weekly record was recorded between April 23 and 29. At that time, an average of 817,000 cases per day were recorded.

The number of confirmed infections, which has been increasing worldwide since mid-October, has risen 37 percent in the past seven days compared to the previous week. However, the increase in new infections has not yet had an impact on the number of deaths, which has been declining globally for the past three weeks, AFP said. Most new infections are currently being recorded in Europe, where a total of more than 3.5 million cases have been registered in the past seven days.
