(Reuters) - More than five million people have now been infected with the new coronavirus worldwide and Latin America is now recording the higher number of new cases, ahead of the United States and Europe.

This development marks a new phase in the pandemic, which started in China, where it peaked in February, before spreading to Europe and then to the United States.

About a third of the 91,000 cases reported since the beginning of the week were reported in Latin America, while just over 20% have been identified in Europe and the United States.

Many of these new Latin American cases originate from Brazil, which has recently overtaken Western European countries to become the third largest epidemic focus in the world behind the United States and Russia.

Only the United States is currently experiencing a greater daily increase in the number of cases than Brazil.

The first 41 official cases of coronavirus contamination were announced on January 10 in Wuhan, in central China. The 1 million mark worldwide was reached on April 1 and, since then, about one million new cases are reported every two weeks, according to Reuters accounts.

The new coronavirus has now infected more people in less than six months than the total number of serious influenza cases registered each year, estimated between 3 and 5 million by the World Health Organization (WHO).

The current pandemic has killed more than 326,000 people, the majority of them in Europe, even if the real number is probably higher because screening remains limited and many countries do not count deaths that occur outside hospitals.
