In the period from December 26, 2022 to January 22, 2023, COVID-19 sickened more than 11 million people, and killed more than 55 thousand.

According to a report by the World Health Organization, compared to the previous 28 days, the number of deaths increased by 13%. The number of infections during this period decreased by a quarter. Infections are mainly recorded in Japan - 672,526 cases, as well as in the United States - 323,721 cases.

They are followed by South Korea, where 192,638 people fell ill with covid, China - 142,066 people, Brazil - 114,916 people. In total, since the beginning of the pandemic, 664,873,023 people have fallen ill with coronavirus in the world, 6,724,248 have died.

In Russia, the total number of cases is 21,901,020, of which 394,821 infected died.

It should be noted that on the eve of a five-day quarantine was introduced in the capital of North Korea, Pyongyang, due to an increase in the number of SARS cases. The notification of the authorities says that the reason is the spread of the common cold, and COVID-19 is not mentioned. Residents of the city are ordered to stay in their homes, as well as measure the temperature several times a day. Recall that the North Korean authorities recognized the presence of the colronavirus in the country only in May 2022, after two years of silence that there may be infected in the DPRK.
