With a coronaviruses death toll in the hundreds of thousands and the death tolls in Sweden and the United States reaching over 100,000, a new pandemic has entered a new phase.
The latest report from the World Health Organization says that as of June 25, Sweden has recorded nearly 50,000 new coronavuses cases and has reported about 4.7 million cases of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) – which is caused by COVID-19.
Sweden has seen a surge in cases of COVID in the last week.
Sweden also has a record-high rate of new cases of coronaviral respiratory disease, the report said.
The coronavids death toll is in the tens of thousands, and many have died.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that over the last month alone more than 200,000 people have died from COVID.
WHO: New coronavides deaths in Sweden ‘a record high’ The coronavide death toll has also risen from the previous peak in April, the WHO said.
The report said coronavid deaths have increased by more than 70 percent in Sweden over the past month.
“The recent rise in COVID cases in Sweden has been unprecedented, and is a record high,” said Dr. Joost Vansunen, the director of the WHO Collaborating Centre for Global Health in Stockholm.
Vansunanen said COVID had killed more than 10 million people in the US, Canada, and Australia.
He said this year’s increase in cases is similar to what has happened in the UK, the first time since records began in 1850 that COVID has killed more people than it has died.
At the peak of the pandemic, COVID killed nearly 20 million people worldwide.
The WHO said it expects this year to see the death count in the United Kingdom and the UK count of COVS, which has surpassed 3 million, to surpass the record.
According to the WHO, COVS deaths rose from 617,000 in January to 1,021,000 on May 6, 2017, and reached a peak of 2,965,000 deaths on June 8.
COVID infections are spread through direct contact with bodily fluids of the infected person or through the respiratory system of an infected person, the UN agency said.
