Quebec continues its déconfinement and the number of new cases of COVID-19 is still far below what it was at the height of the crisis. But this does not reflect what is happening elsewhere. Contrary to what you might believe, there are currently more new cases reported every day in the world than at any other time before. Some regions, such as South America, have been affected later and know in this moment, the peak of the event. Other countries which had experienced an improvement in their balance sheet have seen the number of cases of coronavirus to pick up again.

The curve is rising again in some countries

SWEDEN

This country has seen a significant increase in the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 from the beginning of June, while the number of patients per day remained relatively stable in the last few months. Let us recall that at the beginning of the crisis, Sweden had taken the controversial decision to apply less containment than elsewhere in the world.

NORTHERN MACEDONIA

This nation located in the Balkans has had a peak of contamination in mid-April before returning control to the beginning of the month of may. This small country of 2 million inhabitants exists, however, an important resurgence of all cases of coronavirus since the end of may.

UNITED STATES (TO MONITOR)

After reaching a peak in mid-April, the number of cases has seen a downward trend until the end of may, while the north-east of the country would regain control of the situation. Since then, the balance seems to weigh them down again, so that the virus strikes more strongly in States such as Arizona, Hawaii and Oregon. With the events of Black Lives Matter and the measures déconfinement that take place in the four corners of the United States, it will certainly be necessary to monitor our neighbours to the south in the coming weeks to see if the recent trend will continue.

IRAN

After reaching a low at the end of the month of April, the number of cases has rapidly climbed in may and June. The number of cases is now virtually an income at the same level as the summit occurred two and a half months ago.

ISRAEL

What countries in the Middle East has witnessed a spike in April, which was then sharply up to the end of the month of may. Since that time, the number of cases has started to rise.

KOSOVO

This small european country has seen since the beginning of the month of June, the number of cases to rise significantly. The number of patients has recently exceeded the peak recorded at the end of the month of April, but this figure seems to be down again since.

The balance of the day

  • 8 918 101 cases in the world
  • 466 548 deaths in the world
  • 101 337 cases in Canada
  • 54 766 case in Quebec + 92 compared to Saturday
