As the world faces the first days of its worst ever pandemic, there’s plenty of uncertainty about what will happen.
But there are signs that the pandemics first days will be filled with some optimism, at least.
Here are some key takeaways from the first day of the worst-ever pandemic.
First day of pandemic: There were about 4.5 million deaths reported by the United Nations on Monday.
That’s more than a third of the worldwide total of 10.8 million deaths.
The World Health Organization said the deaths included 1.9 million in China, 1.6 million in India, 1 million in Brazil and 1.3 million in the Philippines.
The Chinese government said it reported more than 2 million cases and deaths across the country on Monday, and the death toll is expected to rise, according to Reuters.
The UN also reported an increase in cases and new cases of respiratory infections, including pneumonia and bronchitis.
There were also new cases in India and in the US, but there was no clear indication of a new outbreak.
Second day of crisis: As of Sunday, there were 4.6 billion people in the world.
About half of them live in developing countries, including more than three quarters of the world’s population of 24.2 billion.
About a third live in low- and middle-income countries.
Some countries that have experienced outbreaks in the past — such as the US and Canada — are seeing their populations rebound, but others — like China, are in a much more vulnerable state.
“The second day of this pandemic has been a really hard day,” Dr. Martin O’Leary, president of the World Health Organisation, told reporters in Geneva on Monday night.
“The virus has already killed millions of people.
Now, as we are seeing, the mortality rates are higher than they have been in the first 24 hours of the outbreak.”
More than 7.6 trillion doses of vaccine have been distributed, according the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
This is the highest number of doses ever distributed in the history of the United States.
More: The first day has seen widespread travel disruptions, including a number of major airports, as many people try to get home from work, and many have been unable to get to work.
The first day saw about 1.5 billion passengers travel to and from the United Kingdom, Canada and the United Arab Emirates, according data from the U.K. Ministry of Transport and Communications.
There has also been a surge in infections.
The number of confirmed cases in the United Sates has jumped from 3,400 in early January to almost 5,000 by Tuesday.
The death toll has risen from more than 11 million to more than 13 million.
Third day of crises: On Monday, there was a sharp rise in cases in countries like Russia and Kazakhstan.
Russia reported more infections, and at least three people died.
In Kazakhstan, the death rate from the virus jumped to more that 9,000.
In India, the deaths have reached 6,500.
The health ministry in India reported about 1,800 new cases, but that number could have more than doubled as people return from work.
In Russia, there are more than 10,000 new cases reported daily.
There have also been reports of more deaths in the city of Novosibirsk, where the virus was detected, as well as in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk, where more than 100 people have died.
Fourth day of chaos: Over the weekend, the United Nation reported that more than 3 million people in countries affected by the pandics coronavirus were still hospitalized, with 1.2 million in intensive care units.
It’s not clear how many of those people will survive.
The coronaviruses first hit China in late January, when the country’s health minister said there were about 1 million cases.
There are fears that as many as 7 million people could die before the pandemia ends.
Fifth day of a crisis: The pandemic began with a flurry of new coronaviral infections, which the World Bank said would likely lead to a doubling of deaths in developed countries within the next four years.
More than 20 million people were infected in the pandetime, according a study published on Monday in the journal Lancet.
However, the coronavivirus has been spreading faster in countries where the pandems first pandemic occurred, and has become the most deadly virus to hit the U,S., or any other industrialized country.
The WHO warned Monday that the pace of the spread is “unprecedented” and has the potential to kill tens of millions of lives.
Sixth day: Some of the deadliest cases have been found in India.
There has been an uptick in the spread of the virus, and there are fears the death rates could rise further, as more people are diagnosed
