The pandemic continues to grow exponentially. As of March 25, It took only 6 days for the global case number to double from 200,000 to over 400,000 (and 2 days from 300,000 to 400,000).

At least 650,567 cases and 30,299 deaths have been reported in 199 countries as of March 28 at 2:30pm EST. Europe and the U.S. account for almost two thirds of all cases globally.  There is growing alarm, however, as case reports are increasing in many low- and middle-income countries.

At least 46 countries across Africa have reported COVID-19 cases, recording more than 4,136 confirmed cases and 128 deaths.

Five countries are experiencing local transmission: South Africa, Algeria, Burkina Faso, Senegal, and Cameroon. All but six countries in the region have reported local infections in contacts of imported cases. The WHO said many of the cases are still linked to travel and that the region still has a window of opportunity to contain the disease.

South Africa reported more than a quarter of the continent’s cases (1,187), with Northern African countries Egypt (576), Algeria 155 new cases, bringing its total case number to 709. Algeria (302 cases) and Burkina Faso (146 cases) are the other 2 worst-hit countries in the region.

The number of cases and deaths in Iran keep growing with total number of cases increasing to 32,332 and the death toll is 2,926. More than half of all Iranian government employees are staying home as part of measures to contain the outbreak. The government has not imposed any travel ban or lockdowns. The significant translocation of the population for the Persian New Year holidays is of concern as it may lead to continued intra-country/provincial exportations of the virus.

The European CDC warned that with current testing capacity and if nations do not enact mitigation strategies, Europe could see by the middle of April a scenario similar to what China experienced in Hubei province at the beginning of the outbreak.

Spain and Germany are leading the increase in number of confirmed cases, accounting for 12% and 13.5% of newly confirmed cases globally on March 28, totalling 65,719 and 50,871 respectively. While Germany has maintained a relatively low CFR (0.75%), the death toll in Spain (5,138) now exceeding China. The decreasing trend in Italy earlier this week did not continue, as the total number of confirmed cases surpassed 86,498 with an alarming CFR of 10.56%.

The pandemic continues to grow exponentially. As of March 25, It took only 6 days for the global case number to double from 200,000 to over 400,000 (and 2 days from 300,000 to 400,000).

At least 650,567 cases and 30,299 deaths have been reported in 199 countries as of March 28 at 2:30pm EST. Europe and the U.S. account for almost two thirds of all cases globally.  There is growing alarm, however, as case reports are increasing in many low- and middle-income countries.
