In just 6 weeks, the world went from 10 million cases to 20 million cases. This shows the late acceleration in the spread of the virus in the entire world. More than half of the total count of cases come from only 3 countries, the US, Brazil, and India. But, besides those countries, other countries like South Africa, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Argentina, Russia, and the Philippines are also contributing the higher number of new cases reported per day. Today, August 11, Russia announced the approval of a vaccine against COVID-19 but not all the details have been disclosed yet.
