Top 15 Countries in the World with the Most Coronavirus Daily Cases – From 1 March to 2 September

On September 2 the number of daily cases worldwide was +286,354. The top 3 states for number of daily cases are again: India, Brazil and USA.

Brazil yesterday exceeded 4 million cases of Coronavirus with an increase of +48,632 cases. While the United States is approaching 6.5 million cases with an increase of more than 40 thousand cases.

Among the first 15 nations in the world for a few weeks there are also Spain and France. In Spain yesterday the cases registered were +8,581 and in France +7,017. In Europe, where the cases in the summer seemed to have definitely decreased, in reality the cases are growing again. Below is the video evolution of the 15 countries in the world with the highest number of daily cases of Covid-19.

Daily cases: India, USA and Brazil vs. the rest of the world

We have seen how India, Brazil and the USA have long been the top 3 countries in terms of the number of daily cases. USA, Brazil and India are among others the top 3 countries in the world for total number of cases. But how much do these 3 countries weigh in daily cases? Thanks to the graph below, you can see that the 3 countries account for far more than 50% of daily cases. In fact, only India these days has more than 25% of total daily cases. If we add Brazil and the United States to this country, the daily cases of these countries exceed 60% of the total. In the rest of the world, this leaves 40% of total daily cases with Argentina being the only country to exceed 10,000 cases.

The daily cases of Covid-19 in the Continents

We have seen in the previous paragraph the distribution of daily cases by country. But which are the Continents (America divided into 2) with the highest number of Covid-19 cases on September 2, 2020? The distribution in this case is more heterogeneous. Excluding Oceania which has 169 cases, the first Continent is Asia. In Asia, the daily cases of Coronavirus on 2 September were 108,812. This represents 50% of the total 206,662 cases. South America followed with 80,620 (with Brazil and Argentina). Then North America with the United States and finally Europe and Africa.

In addition to the daily case data of 2 September, you can also see the data of 2 June. Although the total cases were decidedly less, about 100 thousand, the distribution is more or less similar to 2 September. From 2 June to 2 September in terms of the percentage distribution of daily cases, Asia has grown mainly. In fact, as we have also seen above, India with its over 80 thousand daily cases has a strong impact on the total value of the data.
