Omicron Pushed Global COVID Cases To Above 1 Million for Second Straight Day

The Index Today

The Omicron variant of coronavirus has pushed the global cases of Covid-19 to above one million for the second straight day, news agency Bloomberg broadcasted. The world has been struggling with the coronavirus disease for more than two years now, but there has been little relief. And the Omicron variant threatens to bring back lockdown-like situation again.

The first day when the global tally cases topped the million mark was just last Monday, December 27 2021. There are more than 1.44 million Covid-19 cases were recorded across the world, which smashed the prior record after factoring out a day in December 2020 when Turkey backdated a significant number of cases.

The Covid-19 infection is surging across the United States, which recorded nearly half of the million cases across the world for the last 24 hours. According to the present data, it can be seen that the California is the worst hit region in the US, recording 86,000 new Covid-19 cases in just 24 hours.
