In the region, Mexico and Colombia are also severely affected. In Mexico, more people have now died from the virus than in Great Britain, the number is now at 46,600. This number is even higher in the US and Brazil. In many countries such as Venezuela, we have insufficient insight into the situation because health care has been hit hard by the economic and political collapse. It is certain that Peru and Ecuador are also suffering severely.
The same unclear picture exists in Africa, where South Africa has the heaviest figures with 142,000 infections in two weeks. That country does have the best health care on the continent and the situation may be much worse in other countries, where information is missing or incomplete.
