On November 3, local time, WHO released the weekly epidemiological report of new coronary pneumonia. Last week, there were 3,355,265 new confirmed cases of new coronary pneumonia worldwide, and more than 1.73 million new cases in the European region, accounting for more than half of the global new cases .
In addition, the number of new deaths reported in the European region has also increased significantly, an increase of 46% from the previous week, reaching 17,396. The Americas Region and the Eastern Mediterranean Region saw relatively small increases in new cases last week, while the number of new confirmed cases and new deaths in Southeast Asia continued to decline.
The countries with the most new cases last week are still the United States, India and France.
Since the epidemic, the number of cases in nine countries has exceeded 1 million: the United States, India, Brazil, Russia, France, Spain, Argentina, Colombia and the United Kingdom.
There are more than 40,000 deaths in five countries: the United States, Brazil, India, Mexico and the United Kingdom.
According to data reported by 124 countries and regions, since the epidemic, the proportion of young people infected with new coronary pneumonia has increased, and the proportion of children infected with new coronary pneumonia has also risen slightly, and the proportion of elderly patients over 65 has gradually decreased and has been relatively stable.
This may be because Epidemic surveillance and virus detection capabilities have been enhanced, and more people with mild symptoms and asymptomatic infections have been found.
In addition, the proportion of deaths in the 25-64 age group has increased. The elderly are still the most vulnerable group, with 59% of deaths being men.
