Countries Where Coronavirus Cases Are Growing Fast

COVID-19 cases are growing in many countries around the world, but some are hit harder than others. Numbers by Johns Hopkins University published on Our World in Data show that among the highly affected countries with rising case numbers are several with successful vaccination campaigns, highlighting the need to not rely on vaccination alone to combat the coronavirus.

Chile still recorded an average of 377 new infections per one million of population on Thursday despite having given out 67 vaccine doses per 100 people – the equivalent of 40 percent of the population having received at least one vaccine dose and 27 percent having been fully vaccinated. The same phenomenon is happening in Bahrain (60 doses per 100 people as of April 15) and Qatar (41 doses). According to Our World in Data this places the countries towards the top of the most successful vaccination campaigns in the world.
