Western European countries, which had successfully flattened the curve of COVID-19 infections, are experiencing a surge of new cases. According to numbers by Johns Hopkins University, cases are growing quite rapidly again in Spain and France, where total case numbers of 700,000 and 530,000, respectively, have been surpassed. The UK has also visibly departed from a flat trajectory.
Spain entered the top ten of the most-affected countries in the world once more and is currently in rank 8 for total cases and rank 10 for cases relative to population. France has the 11th most confirmed coronavirus cases worldwide, while the UK counted the fifth-most deaths. The U.S. is currently the country with most known infections as well as deaths and also has a curve of infections which is still pointing upwards. Infections have reached almost 7 million stateside.
