24 Oct. 2020. New Covid-19 infection cases are surging again in most parts of the world, with numbers accelerating fastest in Europe and the Americas. Those data are collected by World Health Organization and displayed in chart form on Thursday by business research company Statista.

The graph shows the moving seven-day average number of new Covid-19 cases reported by national health authorities since March; the seven-day average smooths out daily fluctuations sometimes influenced by local conditions, such as weekend closures. Cases in Europe — including European Union, Russia, U.K., and Israel — have climbed most markedly since September, with the Americas, notably the U.S. and Brazil, rising almost as quickly.

Covid-19 cases in South-East Asia that covers India, Bangladesh, and Indonesia, are also rising since the summer but not at the same rate as Europe and the Americas. And case counts in the Western Pacific region, which includes China and Japan, remain low.

As of today, WHO reports 41.8 million Covid-19 cases worldwide, with more than 238,000 new cases, and 1.1 million deaths since the pandemic began. The New York Times today reports more than 85,000 new cases in the U.S., from its counts of data from state and local health agencies.
