COVID cases surge in North America, decline in South America, says health agency
COVID-19 infections have risen by a third in North America over the past week, due to surges in the United States and Canada, where new infections have doubled in the province of Alberta, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) said on Wednesday.
As many parts of the world report a steady decrease in COVID infections, the Americas reported a nearly 20% increase in new cases, PAHO said. Most South American countries are seeing continuing declines in COVID infections and deaths, it said.
