Coronavirus : the milestone of 10 million cases in the world has been crossed - The Point

At least 10 003 942 cases of infection, among which 498 779 deaths, have been identified, including in Europe, the continent most affected with 2 637 546 cases and 195 975 deaths, as well as in the United States (2 510 323 cases, of which 125 539 deaths).

20 million infected persons in the United States ?

The number of reported cases in the world has doubled since may 21, and more than a million new cases of Covid-19 have been recorded only on the last six days. In fact, it took 94 days between the announcement of the first case in China and the census of a million infections in the world. The United States has crossed the 2.5 million cases Saturday, and on the same day, India passed the bar of 500 000, with a record of about 18 500 cases in one day. The indian giant is expected to pass the million mark in July, according to epidemiologists.

All of these balance sheets do not reflect, however, that a fraction of the real number of infections. The centres for prevention and disease control (CDC) estimate of the order of 10 times more than the number of Americans that have been contaminated, or more than 20 million people, which represents between 5% and 8% of the population. The contagion is progressing in 30 of the 50 american States, especially in the largest and most populous of the South and West : California, Texas and Florida.
