In recent weeks, the death toll has steadily fallen to around 200 lives a day, according to the Prensa Latina count based on CDC reports.

However, Thursday’s report increased, so the death toll climbed to 602 in the last 24 hours, totaling 115,252.

Regarding contagions, the situation is just as alarming, 17,425 new Covid-19 cases were reported on Thursday, a net increase of nearly 7,000 compared to Wednesday’s figures, totaling 4,355,391.

Although disturbing, the rise in both indices correspond to the up-and-down trend shown by the course of the pandemic on the African continent, with the possible influence of the emergence of new strains of SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes the lethal disease, one of which was detected in South Africa recently.
