Coronavirus updates from around the world, as of May 29: the second wave is on the decline, but a third is possible.
In the US, the number of new cases jumped to 22 thousand, and the number of deaths arose to more than 1,000 per day. Regions recorded these increases, with New York contributing about 10% of the cases.
A record-increase was also observed in Brazil, with new cases jumping to 24 thousand. Developed countries are suggested to help Brazil with doctors and funds.
Meanwhile, India will be declared as the new center of the pandemic, if the situation in the country continues to deteriorate (if the growth of new cases accelerate even further).
Although there is a decline in deaths around the world (deaths in the US have decreased), new cases are still at a high level (particularly in Brazil and India).
In Russia, the situation in Moscow has improved, but the statistics in other regions seem to have increased. In total, Russia records 387 thousand coronavirus cases, of which 224 thousand are “active”.
