COVID-19 Update: Europe sees slowing infection growth, US entering the toughest period, stock markets trade in seesaw pattern
We plan to publish the next COVID-19 update after Easter. Meanwhile, if you are interested, you can follow the daily numbers at https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/, where you can find country details and charts by clicking on the country in the table. Keep an eye on Europe and the US in particular, although developments in India and Brazil should also be on the radar. We hope to bring some good news on the spread of the virus after Easter. Happy Easter and stay safe.
The bottom line is that the contagion continues to decline in Europe, where growth in infections is now below 10% in most countries and growth in deaths is moving lower. The US is still seeing a higher number of new infections and deaths and it is set to get worse in the coming week before we expect it to get gradually get better the week after. New York is seeing a stabilisation in new hospitalisations. In India and Brazil, infections are still moving higher.
