Next two months to be tougher with more COVID-19 deaths

Europe to see rise in deaths in coming months - WHO

Earlier, Tedros also urged the world not to delve into blame games regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, warning that such acts were detrimental to the fight against the pandemic.

India reported 94,372 new cases, followed by the United States with 45,523 new infections and Brazil with 43,718.

"We are going to see 1,000 infections soon".

The WHO reported 307,930 new cases worldwide on Sunday, the highest daily figure since the beginning of the pandemic in China late past year, as global cases rapidly approach 29 million. "The world throws money at an outbreak, then does little to prevent the next one", he said.

The WHO also reported 5,537 Covid-19 related deaths on Sunday; the highest number of deaths recorded in a single day to date was 12,430 on 17 April.


The US accounted for the world's highest number of cases and deaths at 6,519,121 and 194,041 respectively.

The biggest increases in infections were reported in India, the USA and Brazil.

Spain has seen a surge in infections since a strict three-month national lockdown was lifted at the end of June, with Madrid facing the brunt of this so-called second wave of infections.

In a statement on Sunday, the World Health Organization said that there were 307,930 new cases globally in the last 24 hours, the highest single-day figure ever registered and about 1,000 more than the previous recording-setting daily caseload a week earlier, reports Xinhua news agency.

The government announced last week that from today, the limit on gatherings in Portugal will be tightened to 10 people from 20, aligning other regions with a rule that is already in place for Lisbon.
