Between January 16 and February 12, 2023, there were more than 6.7 million new coronavirus infections reported worldwide, along with 64,000 fatalities, according to the summary.

The countries with the highest reported numbers of cases include Japan (1.63 million), China (1.3 million), the USA (1.17 million), South Korea (543,000), and Brazil (332,000). China (21 thousand), the USA (14.3 thousand), Japan (8.2 thousand), Brazil (2.4 thousand), and Great Britain (2.3 thousand) were the top five countries in terms of coronavirus mortality.

The WHO announced earlier that the second stage of its research into the coronavirus's genesis had come to an end.

The decision was made, according to the group, because of issues with data gathering in China. The WHO stated that it considers the coronavirus's transmission from bats through an intermediary mammal to be the most likely genesis theory.
