According to the World Health Organization, the highest incidence rates were recorded in the United States, Brazil and India, according to NBC. In the midst of the Independence Day celebrations in America, over 57 thousand new cases of COVID-19 were detected, 661 people died. Among all states, Florida broke a sad record, where over 11.4 thousand cases were detected. The number of cases in the United States exceeds 2.8 million people, about 130 thousand patients have died.
“Learn to live with the virus,” NBC quoted US President Donald Trump as his address to the nation on July 4.
Brazil, the world's second-highest morbid country, had 37,923 new cases on Saturday, with 1,091 deaths. The total number of cases today exceeds 1.6 million, more than 64.8 thousand patients have died.
In India, the daily increase was 24 850 cases, more than 19.6 thousand people died. The total number of cases exceeds 697.4 thousand patients.
It is noteworthy that in Russia the total number of cases is more than 686 thousand, and according to this indicator, our country ranks fourth in the world, with over 10 thousand deaths registered. Alarming reports regularly appear on social media and the media that Russian health authorities are deliberately underreporting morbidity and mortality by refusing people with symptoms with COVID-19 to be tested and hospitalized.
In mid-June, the World Health Organization (WHO) called the mortality rates from COVID-19 in Russia "difficult to understand". In an interview with CNN, press secretary Dmitry Peskov said that the state does not manipulate statistics.
