The highest number of infections as of April 15 was recorded in the USA - 616,168. The highest number of deaths more than 26,000 - was also registered in the USA.
It should be noted that official data do not fully reflect the true prevalence of Covid-19, as in many countries testing is limited to more severe symptoms. For some people, the symptoms can be mild. Researchers estimate that only 6% of all Covid-19 cases could be detected.
There are also concerns that not all countries provide true data. Such concerns have been expressed mainly about the original epicenter of the disease in China.
