According to the latest statistics from Reuters, these infections with the virus that causes the Covid-19 epidemic have been recorded in more than 210 countries and regions since the first cases were discovered in the central Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2019.
According to the statistics, the United States of America still leads in terms of infections with the Corona virus, with its various variants, as well as in terms of deaths.
The United States alone has recorded more than 77 million cases of the virus, including more than 911,000 deaths.
India came second in terms of the number of confirmed people infected with the virus, as the total number of infections reached about 42.4 million people, including more than half a million deaths.
Brazil, the largest country in Latin America, ranked third in terms of infections and second in terms of deaths after the United States, as it recorded nearly 27 million cases of Covid-19, including up to 633,810 deaths.
In the Arab world, it appears that Iraq is at the forefront of the number of coronavirus infections, as the total number of coronavirus cases has reached 2,258,844 confirmed cases, while 24,570 deaths have been recorded.
Jordan ranked second in terms of injuries, with 1,374,453 injuries, including 13,382 deaths.
Morocco came in third place in terms of infection with the Corona virus, and recorded 1,149,582 infections, while the number of deaths from the epidemic reached 15,657 deaths.
It is worth noting that since the emergence of the Omicron mutated from the Corona virus, many countries of the world began to witness an acceleration in the pace of Corona infections.
The World Health Organization has announced that half a million deaths from Covid-1 have been recorded since the discovery of this mutation, and described this outcome as “more than tragic.”
The director of accident management at the organization, Abdi Mahmoud, said that 130 million injuries and 500 thousand deaths had been recorded in the world since the announcement of the Omicron mutant of concern in late November.
Since then, the mutated Omicron has quickly overtaken Delta to become the world’s fastest-growing tyrant, although its symptoms appear to be less severe.
