The global tally of confirmed coronavirus infections stands at 3,084,762, and the death toll is 212,522. The US remains the most affected country in the world, with no improvement in sight. In India, the tally is very close to breaching the 30,000 mark, with more than 900 deaths. In a piece of positive news, however, fresh daily coronavirus cases have been receding for a few days now. It has been roughly two months since the coronavirus outbreak spread exponentially outside of China. A look at the trends in these two months shows that the pandemic was limited to Europe for most of March, after which North America began contributing equally to the number of reported cases as well as deaths. The share of Asia (excluding China in the initial stages) has been limited throughout these two months. Italy, which became the first epicentre of the pandemic outside of China, is reporting a steady decline in the number of daily deaths. However, Ecuador has witnessed the biggest spike, with the number of cases doubling in a short period.
