The situation improved in many regions of the world, with 32% fewer cases in Africa, 25% fewer in the United States and Canada, 21% fewer in the Middle East. Cases were down seven percent in Asia and two percent in Oceania.

But the situation deteriorated in Latin America and the Caribbean, with a 33% increase, largely due to a catch-up in figures in Brazil, and with a slight four percent increase in Europe.

BIGGEST SPIKES

Singapore was the country where the epidemic picked up most speed with 129% more daily cases. Romania followed with 75% more, Ukraine 58% more and Syria and Turkey with 23% more each.

BIGGEST DROPS

At the other end of the spectrum, Botswana saw 51% fewer cases this week, followed by Japan (50% less), Sri Lanka (43% down), South Africa (39% down) and Azerbaijan (38% down).

US HAS MOST INFECTIONS

The US remained by far the country with the biggest number of new cases, with 126,000 per day, nevertheless that is a decrease of 26%. Next worst was the United Kingdom with 32,400 cases, a 10% increase, and Turkey (31,200), a 23% increase.

On a per capita basis the country that recorded the most new cases over the week was Serbia with 653 cases per 100,000 inhabitants), followed by Mongolia (630) and Cuba (496).

... AND MOST DEATHS

The US also mourned the biggest number of deaths with 2,041 per day. It was followed by Russia (801), which on Friday marked a new daily record of 828 deaths, and Mexico (542).

At a global level the number of daily deaths decreased by nine percent to 8,384.

VACCINATIONS

With its homegrown three-dose vaccines, Cuba led the vaccination race this week among countries with more than one million inhabitants, inoculating 2.69% of its population every day.

Cambodia (1.46%) and Iran (1.36%) completed the podium.

Even though they are vaccinating more slowly, the United Arab Emirates has the most advanced vaccination drive, having administered 199 doses per 100 inhabitants. Uruguay follows with 176 and then Israel on 171.
