WHO reports decrease in world COVID cases; US elevated

Global coronavirus cases saw their “first substantial decline” in more than two months last week, the World Health Organization reported Tuesday. Yet cases in the U.S. continue to remain highly elevated, particularly among children, according to a separate pediatric report.

New COVID-19 cases fell over the last week in all six global regions the WHO operates in ― Africa, the Americas, the Eastern Mediterranean, Europe, South-East Asia and the Western Pacific ― compared to the previous week. The total number of deaths reported globally also decreased compared to the previous week, according to The WHO’s weekly case report which tallied about 4 million new cases, down from about 4.4 million.

The Americas and Europe had the highest weekly rates of COVID-19 cases and related deaths. This was similar to the week before. The U.S. continues to report the highest number of new cases, with 1 million added last week. The United Kingdom came in second, with 256,000 new cases, followed by India with 248,000 new cases.
