Coronavirus Pandemic Situation Report #132
· The World Health Organization (WHO) is reporting that as of April 12th, there have been 762,791,152 confirmed cases of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and 6,897,025 deaths.
· Globally, three million new cases and over 23,000 deaths were reported in the last 28 days (March 13 to April 9), a decrease of 28% and 30%, respectively, compared to the previous 28 days (February 13 to March 12). Contrary to the overall trend, important increases in reported cases and deaths were seen in the South-East Asia and Eastern Mediterranean regions and in several individual countries elsewhere.
· Current trends in reported COVID-19 cases continue to be underestimates of the true number of global infections and reinfections as shown by prevalence surveys. This is partly due to the reductions in testing and delays in reporting in many countries. Data presented in this report is therefore incomplete and should be interpreted with caution.
