The global tally for the coronavirus-borne illness headed above 182 million on Thursday, according to data aggregated by Johns Hopkins University , while deaths climbed above 3.94 million. The U.S. continues to lead the world in total cases at 33.7 million, and by deaths that total 604,714. The World Health Organization said a 10-week decline in new cases in Europe has come to an end, with cases up 10% last week. WHO regional director for Europe Hans Kluge said the rise is due to relaxed restrictions and increased travel, the Guardian reported, and said a new wave will emerge if discipline is not maintained. On a global basis, India is second in total cases at 30.4 million and third by fatalities at 399,459, although those numbers are expected to be undercounted given a shortage of tests. Brazil has the third-highest caseload at 18.6 million, according to JHU data, and is second in deaths at 518,066. Mexico has fourth-highest death toll at 233,047 and 2.5 million cases. In Europe, Russia has overtaken the U.K. by deaths. Russia has 133,633 fatalities, while the U.K. has 128,404, making Russia the country with the fifth-highest death toll in the world and highest in Europe.
