The variety of newly reported deaths dropped 21% to 18,215. WHO stated new cases declined in every region, though only by 2% in the Americas. The report was dated late Wednesday and sent out to journalists on Thursday.The agency stated that “these patterns need to be interpreted with care as a number of countries are progressively changing their COVID-19 testing methods, leading to lower overall varieties of tests performed and as a result lower numbers of cases spotted.”The countries with the greatest reported case numbers recently were South Korea with more than 972,000, France with over 827,000 and Germany with more than 769,000, WHO said. The greatest varieties of new deaths were reported by the U.S., with 3,076, Russia with 1,784 and South Korea with 1,671. In all, more than 502 million cases of COVID-19 and nearly 6.2 million deaths associated to the coronavirus have been reported up until now.
