Number of COVID-19 cases and deaths as of February 28, 2021, by region

The novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), which originated in China, has spread to many regions and territories around the world. As of March 1, 2021, the number of confirmed cases had reached almost 115 million.

Cases surge in the Americas

The Americas is the region most impacted by COVID-19. The number of coronavirus cases and deaths are particularly high in the United States and Brazil. The pandemic has had a devastating impact on Latin America, and several nations have recorded a resurgence in cases, highlighting the complexity of easing restrictions while the virus is still a threat. However, mass vaccination programs have been launched in countries including Argentina, Chile, and Panama.

The role of face masks in the prevention of COVID-19

There has been much discussion about the effectiveness of face masks in slowing the spread of the COVID-19 disease. Many governments around the world have made it mandatory to wear a form of face mask, particularly in shops and on public transport. Masks alone will not halt the spread of the disease, and they should be used alongside other measures such as social distancing and regularly washing hands.
