Covid-19 is continuing to spread around the world, with more than 140 million confirmed cases and 3 million deaths across nearly 200 countries.

The US, India and Brazil have seen the highest number of confirmed cases, followed by France, Russia and the UK.

Very few places have been left untouched.

In the table below, countries can be reordered by deaths, death rate and total cases. In the coloured bars on the right-hand side, countries in which cases have risen to more than 10,000 per day are those with black bars on the relevant date.

Note: The map, table and animated bar chart in this page use a different source for figures for France and the UK from that used by Johns Hopkins University, which results in a slightly lower overall total. US figures do not include Puerto Rico, Guam or the US Virgin Islands.

Confirmed cases have been rising steeply since the middle of last year, but the true extent of the first outbreaks in 2020 is unclear because testing was not then widely available.

The 100 millionth coronavirus case was recorded at the end of January - about a year after the first officially diagnosed case of the virus.

Deaths have also been rising, however official figures may not fully reflect the true number in many countries.

Data on excess deaths , a measure of how many more people are dying than would be expected based on the previous few years, may give a better indication of the actual numbers in many cases.

Who has vaccinated the most?

Several coronavirus vaccines against the virus have now been approved for use, either by individual countries or groups of countries, such as the European Union and the World Health Organization (WHO).

Of the 171 countries and territories administering vaccines and publishing rollout data, 67 are high-income nations, 90 are middle-income and 14 low-income.

The map below, using figures collated by Our World in Data - a collaboration between Oxford University and an educational charity - shows the total number of doses given per 100 people, mostly first doses.

Overall, the US and China have given the most doses, 209 million and 183 million respectively, while India has administered more than 123 million so far.

But when breaking the figures down by doses per 100 people in countries with a population of at least one million, Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Chile and the UK top the list.

Most countries are prioritising the over-60s, health workers and people who are clinically vulnerable.

Some countries have secured more vaccine doses than their populations need, while other lower-income countries are relying on a global plan known as Covax, which is seeking to ensure everyone in the world has access to a vaccine.

Several African countries have received vaccines through the Covax initiative, with vaccinations now underway in Ghana, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Kenya and Rwanda, among others.

Where are cases still high?

With many countries yet to deliver widespread vaccine rollouts, cases are either stable or rising in most regions.

Here's a breakdown of the situation by region:

Europe

Several European countries including Turkey, France and Germany are seeing rises in infections once more.

Turkish authorities have imposed new measures to limit the spread of coronavirus, banning traditional Ramadan gatherings and restricting travel.

France, in the midst of a third national lockdown, has become the third country in Europe after the UK and Italy to reach 100,000 Covid-19-related deaths.

Poland has seen a record number of new infections and Hungary has suffered one of the highest Covid mortality rates in the world.

Vaccine rollouts across the European Union have been problematic. There have been delays to deliveries and concerns over the safety of the Oxford-Astra Zeneca vaccine, which a number of countries have withdrawn from use or restricted to certain age groups.

North America

The US has recorded more than 31 million cases and more than 565,000 deaths, the highest figures in the world.

Daily cases now appear to be levelling off after a steep fall in February.

Canada, which has a far lower death rate than the US, also experienced a recent surge. Daily cases there fell in January before rising in March and April.

Asia

Asia was the centre of the initial outbreak that spread from China in early 2020, but the number of cases and deaths there has been lower than in Europe and North America.

The number of cases has been surging in India, the Philippines and Bangladesh.

India has seen more than 14 million confirmed cases, the second-highest total in the world after the US and the capital Delhi has announced a week-long lockdown after a surge in cases.

Middle East

Several countries in the Middle East have had deadly coronavirus outbreaks over the past 12 months, with Iran and Egypt having seen the highest numbers of deaths.

Cases have fallen in Israel but several countries, including Iran and Iraq are currently seeing renewed outbreaks.

Israel's vaccination programme has been highly successful in reducing the number of cases there.

Africa

Africa has recorded more than 4.3 million cases and over 117,000 deaths - but the true extent of the pandemic in many African countries is not known as testing rates are low.

South Africa, with more than 1.5 million cases, is the worst affected country on the continent, according to official figures.

Morocco, Egypt, Ethiopia, Tunisia, Libya, Algeria, Nigeria and Kenya have also recorded more than 100,000 cases.

Latin America

Brazil's infection rate has soared in recent weeks, and daily deaths account for about a quarter of all Covid-19 fatalities in the world.

The country has recorded more than 370,000 deaths, and a recent estimate from the University of Washington predicted that Brazil could see a total of more than 500,000 deaths by July.

Argentina, Colombia and Mexico have all recorded more than two million cases.

At the end of March, Mexico published a revised death toll, suggesting that the number of coronavirus fatalities was more than 60% higher than previously reported. More than 321,000 people were calculated to have died from Covid-19.

Oceania

Australia and New Zealand have been praised for their response to the pandemic, with both countries having seen comparatively few deaths.

In a sign of how effective their lockdown measures have been, the average number of cases in both countries is similar to that in French Polynesia, a sprawling network of islands in the Pacific Ocean.

Australia's vaccine rollout is, however, behind schedule, with further delays likely after local regulators advised limiting use of the AstraZeneca jab.

Elsewhere in the region, Papua New Guinea has seen a recent spike in infections, taking total cases there to more than 9,000.

How did coronavirus spread?

Covid-19 was first detected in the city of Wuhan, China, in late 2019 but the outbreak spread quickly across the globe in the first months of 2020.

It was declared a global pandemic by the WHO on 11 March 2020.

A pandemic is when an infectious disease is passing easily from person to person in many parts of the world at the same time.

About this data

The data used on this page comes from a variety of sources. It includes figures collated by Johns Hopkins University, data from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, national governments and health agencies, as well as UN data on populations.

When comparing figures from different countries it is important to bear in mind that not all governments are recording coronavirus cases and deaths in the same way. This makes like for like comparisons between countries difficult.

Other factors to consider include: different population sizes, the size of a country's elderly population or whether a particular country has a large amount of its people living in densely-populated areas. In addition, countries may be in different stages of the pandemic.
