update on the most affected countries


#More than 1.8 million people have died since the start of the coronavirus epidemic, with more than 80 million officially registered cases over the course of the health crisis. The #Covid-19 will have affected the whole world, but some countries have been hit particularly hard.

The #United #States, which has never managed to fully contain the epidemic, remains the country with the highest number of positive cases, with a total that is now approaching the 20 million confirmed cases mark. #Nothing seems to be improving for the moment: since #November, the country has regularly recorded new records of infections, with a peak of 280,000 cases reached on #December 11. #More than 340,000 #Americans have died from #Covid-19.

#On mortality, #Belgium is in the lead. #As of #December 30, the country had 1,677.45 deaths from the new coronavirus per 1 million inhabitants, according to data from #Johns #Hopkins #University. The country has had a high death rate since the start of the crisis. #In #April, the former #Belgian minister #Denis #Ducarme had justified that the “counting method” of the country was “the most exhaustive possible”.

#France, the most affected #European country

#Behind the #United #States, the countries most concerned are #India with a little over 10 million cases, a figure to be put into perspective by the size of its population (1.35 billion inhabitants), #Brazil (7.619 million cases) and #Russia (3.1 million cases).

#In fifth position, with more than 2.5 million confirmed infections, #France is the most affected #European country in terms of number of cases. #As in many other countries, the fear of a third wave after the end of year celebrations suggests that this balance sheet could deteriorate markedly in the weeks and months to come. #If the hypothesis of a third confinement in #France is for the moment excluded, an advanced curfew at 6 p.m. in certain territories should be put in place.

#In addition to health measures, the world now has vaccines to try to end the health crisis. #That produced by #Pfizer and #BioNTech is gradually spreading, but others, including those of #Moderna and #Astrazeneca but also #Russian vaccines, #Sputnik V, and #Chinese, #Sinovac.
