NCOV UPDATE 4/14

As of 5 p.m. on April 14, there were over 138 million coronavirus cases globally, with the death toll reaching 2.9 million, according to John Hopkins University. The good news is that there are over 111 million recoveries.

The United States is leading the world in both COVID-19 infections and fatalities, with over 32 million confirmed cases and over 577,000 deaths.

Johnson & Johnson announced that it will delay the deployment of its vaccine in Europe after the U.S. health authorities had recommended a “pause” in the use of this vaccine over blood clots concerns. Meanwhile, South Africa has also suspended the rollout of Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine, its health minister said.

Close to 40 million COVID-19 vaccine doses have been distributed through the COVAX Facility, half of them in Africa, but vaccine supplies are still stalled due to “tremendous demand” especially in India, the World Health Organization said.
