The number of confirmed cases of coronavirus in Germany grows by 16,946 to a total of 1,908,527, according to the latest data released today by the Robert Koch Institute.

The Guardian reports it.

Belgium exceeds the threshold of 20 thousand deaths, of which more than half concern residents in retirement homes.

In fact, according to the data provided by the authorities, in the last 24 hours the total number of victims has risen from 19,992 to 20,038.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, 662,694 infections have been registered in Belgium.

The total number of Covid-19 infections officially registered in Mexico since the beginning of the pandemic has exceeded 1.5 million, of which 1.13 recovered.

This was announced by the American University Johns Hopkins.

With its 128.65 million inhabitants, the North American country has so far recorded over 132,000 deaths related to the new coronavirus.

Mexico ranks fourth in the world for the number of Covid-19 victims behind India (150,000), Brazil (202,000) and the United States (372,000).

Infection boom in California, where almost one in ten residents in Los Angels county now has Covid.

Taken by storm, hospitals have been forced to close the doors of their emergency rooms in some cases, the New York Times reports.

"We are living in our 'New York moment'," says Robert Kim-Farley, an infectious disease expert at the University of California, referring to last spring when New York was the epicenter of Covid in the United States which set a new record of daily infections, almost 290,000 cases in 24 hours, with 3,676 deaths.

Two million new cases of Covid and 24,000 deaths in the United States in the first nine days of 2021. This was reported by CNN, citing data from Johns Hopkins University, according to which Covid cases in the United States have now exceeded 22 million. 

Over four thousand deaths within four days for a total that exceeds the 80,000 lives lost since the beginning of the health crisis: the increasingly funeral records recorded by the United Kingdom on the front of the Covid-19 epidemic certify a situation that is clearly worsening.

Despite the vaccination campaign that continues with a beating drum and which has seen the injection - in their Windsor castle - also Queen Elizabeth II and the Prince consort Philip.

The United Kingdom appears to be the victim of a negative conjuncture in which they conspire the winter season that obliges to stay indoors, a variant of the virus identified in England and considered by doctors more contagious up to 70% and a condition of the national health system under increasing stress.

Even in the last 24 hours, the new infections have remained around 60,000, albeit with a number of monstre swabs: 620,000 tests.

And the increase in hospitalizations raises concerns about the risk of a saturation of the hospitals of the Kingdom.
