A World Health Organization report showed today, Wednesday, that the number that was recorded last week of new Corona virus infections around the world decreased by 11% to 2.4 million, but that the rate of decline was less than recorded in the previous four weeks.
The weekly decline slowed significantly in Europe, Africa and the Asia-Pacific region.
Weekly numbers rose in Southeast Asia and the Middle East.
The Americas remained the only region in the world where cases continued to decline by more than 10%.
The organization did not provide explanations for this development.
The report indicated that virus mutations, which are believed to be more capable of spreading, have appeared in an increasing number of countries.
The detection of the mutation, which was first discovered in Britain, was reported in 101 countries, while the so-called South African boom was reported in 51 countries, and the so-called Brazilian boom was reported in 28 countries.
