The jump in number is led by India, Brazil and Russia where the peak is yet to arrive. All three are high population countries constituting 22% of world population and the daily growth rate of Covid cases is hovering around 6 % in these 3 countries. Most of the western countries (with probable a few exceptions) seem to have past their peak and daily growth rate is almost 2% or less.
