Groeitempo van Covid-19-gevallen in de wereld

April 23, 2020 - Covid-19 blijft zich mondiaal verspreiden. Meer dan 50 landen zien
momenteel een snelle stijging van het aantal gevallen. In andere landen
neemt het groeitempo af na de introductie van nationale lockdowns.

Among the countries which have seen recent growth in newly reported cases are Russia, Brazil, India, Saudi Arabia and Nigeria, according to data from the The New York Times.

Elsewhere, the growth rate of the virus has appeared to slow in countries with the highest number of cases – including the United States, Spain, Italy, Turkey and the UK – but a lack of widespread testing may mean that cases are being undercounted.

Countries such as Germany, France, Iran, Australia and South Korea have seen a decrease in the number of new Covid-19 cases.

For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and death. The vast majority of people recover.
