Coronavirus is continuing its spread across the world with more than 97 million confirmed cases in 191 countries and more than two million deaths.

The virus is surging in many regions and countries that had apparent success in suppressing initial outbreaks are also seeing infections rise again.

Note: The recent jump and fall in the 56-day trend for global cases was caused by Turkey announcing 800,000 previously unreported infections on 10 December. Recent numbers may also be affected by incomplete data over the Christmas period.

This information is regularly updated but may not reflect the latest totals for each country.

** The past data for new cases is a three day rolling average. Due to revisions in the number of cases, an average cannot be calculated for this date.

Figures last updated: 22 January 2021, 14:49 GMT

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.

Coronavirus cases have surged over the past few months in several regions of the world and large numbers of new infections are being reported daily.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that the virus will continue to spread rapidly in the coming months.

It's likely that the true scale of deaths in many countries is not fully reflected in the official figures. 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.

Which countries have vaccinated the most?

Several coronavirus vaccines have now been approved for use, either by individual countries or groups of countries, such as the European Union and the WHO.

Of the 53 countries administering vaccines and publishing rollout data, 43 are high-income nations and 10 are middle-income. None are low-income nations.

Some countries have secured more vaccine doses than their populations need, while other lower-income countries are relying on the global vaccine plan known as Covax, which is seeking equitable distribution.

WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has said that the prospects for an equitable distribution of vaccines were at "serious risk". He added: "The world is on the brink of a catastrophic moral failure."

The map above, 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.

Most of the jabs approved for use so far rely on two doses, given more than a week apart.

China and the US have given the most doses overall, with more than 15 million each, while the UK has administered more than five million.

But when breaking the figures down by population, looking at doses administered per 100 people in the 10 countries giving the most vaccinations, Israel, the UAE and the UK top the list. They have administered about 38, 23 and eight doses per 100 people respectively.

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

US has most cases and deaths

The US has recorded more than 24 million cases and more than 410,000 deaths from coronavirus, the highest figures in the world.

There are about 120,000 people in hospital with Covid-19 in the US, double the number in either of the two previous waves.

On Thursday, US President Joe Biden warned that the number of cases was likely to reach 500,000 by the end of February. "It's going to take months for us to turn things around," he added.

Cases rise in Europe

Many European countries saw a resurgence in cases during the autumn, and most brought back lockdowns and other restrictions to curb infections.

In the UK there are signs that a steep rise in cases driven by a new, more easily spread, variant of the disease may now be over.

Where else has seen high cases?

Asia was the centre of the initial outbreak, but the number of cases there was relatively low until India saw a surge in infections over the summer.

India has recorded more than 10.6 million cases, the second-highest official total in the world after the US. But the daily number has been falling since September and India's vaccination programme has now started.

In Latin America, there is concern about a new variant of the virus which is spreading rapidly in Brazil. The country has more than eight million confirmed cases and the world's second highest death toll.

Africa has recorded more than 3.2 million cases, but the true extent of the pandemic in many African countries is not known as testing rates are low.

Another variant of the disease spreading in South Africa is thought to share some similarities with the new UK strain, including being more easily transmissible.

South Africa, with about 1.4 million cases and more than 39,000 deaths, is the worst affected country on the continent, according to official figures.

Morocco, Egypt, Ethiopia, Tunisia, Libya, Algeria and Nigeria are the other African countries to officially record more than 100,000 cases. Kenya is the only other country close to that threshold.

How did coronavirus spread?

The virus, which causes the respiratory infection Covid-19, was first detected in the city of Wuhan, China, in late 2019.

The outbreak spread quickly across the globe in the first months of 2020 and declared a global pandemic by the WHO on 11 March.

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

Governments across the world have been forced to limit public movement and close businesses and venues in a bid to slow the spread of the virus. This has had a devastating impact on the global economy.

In November, the International Monetary Fund said that while global economic activity had picked up over the summer there were "signs that the recovery may be losing momentum". It also warned that the crisis was "likely to leave deep, unequal scars".

Recent data from UN Women suggested the pandemic could also wipe out 25 years of increasing gender equality.

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.
