I have been conducting Data Analytics Studies on the Coronavirus Pandemic for 99 days and have written 155 research-based blog posts on COVID-19 in these 99 days.
In 24 hours between mid-day (12:00 noon) UTC yesterday and today, there have been many changes in the Top 28 countries which have reported a minimum of 48,000 positive Covid cases.
PERU overtook Italy to reach the No.7 rank.
CHILE overtook Iran and Germany to reach the No.9 rank, mainly as it reported 31,422 cases that had occurred in the past. In doing so, the small South American country with a population of 19.11 million also became the 9th country to cross 200,000 cases.
PAKISTAN overtook Mexico and France to reach the No.13 rank.
MEXICO itself overtook France but retained its No.14 rank as Pakistan had overtaken it.
BANGLADESH overtook Canada to reach the No.17 rank.
COLOMBIA overtook Belarus to reach the No.23 rank.
EGYPT overtook Ecuador and Netherlands to reach the No.26 rank.
There is a huge gap of 20,064 cases between No.21 South Africa and No.22 Belgium. The Top 21 countries now account for more than 83.3% of worldwide Covid-19 cases.
