On Tuesday, the pandemic claimed 657 lives in the United States, taking the total number of deaths in the country to 100,580. John Hopkins University informed that 33% of the total deaths in the world had been reported from the United States alone. The university pointed out that the number of deaths reported from the United States is less than 700 for three successive days. The figures of the pandemic reported from Europe have also shown a decline. There were 209 deaths on Tuesday. While the number of deaths is decreasing in the United States and Europe, Brazil reported 1,039 deaths in one single day.

91,940 new Coronavirus cases were reported from around the world, thus taking the total count of cases to 5,727,522.

Latin America has become the new epicentre of the pandemic, and the pandemic has claimed more than 34,000 lives in 14 Latin American countries. Whereas, the total number of cases has crossed 700,000. John Hopkins University informed that the maximum number of cases and deaths were reported from Brazil, Ecuador and Peru, among the Latin American countries. The human rights organisations and John Hopkins University accused Venezuela of hiding the real numbers of cases and deaths in the country. President Maduro declared that the pandemic has claimed only 11 lives and there are only 1,200 Coronavirus cases in the country. The human rights organisations are accusing that the Maduro government is hiding the real figures.

Meanwhile, more than 300 asymptomatic Coronavirus cases have been reported from China and South Korea. The local administration in the city of Wuhan, in China, informed that a minimum of 200 cases of the asymptomatic type were found during the screening started ten days ago. Whereas, South Korea reported a minimum of 125 asymptomatic patients. Therefore, concerns are being expressed that this new wave of Coronavirus may acquire dangerous proportions as the symptoms are not very easily detectable in patients.
