Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 6,658,000 with over 391,000 deaths and 2,886,000 recoveries.

Globally, cases continue to rise with 4 June seeing one of the largest one day growths since the start of the pandemic.

India has continued to see increasing rate of growth in cases since early April and these new cases contributed in part to the large spike seen globally.

Civil rights protests continued in the US into the second weekend, with countries all over taking similar action.

These mass gatherings pose a major concern for nations worldwide as efforts are made to contain a second wave of infections.
