At present, South Africa is the world’s fifth in the number of coronavirus cases. The epidemiological situation in the country continues to deteriorate, as despite a decreasing number of new cases reported daily, the number of tests has decreased as well. On August 2, 2020 the total number of infected exceeded 511,000, with a daily increase staying at 10,000 – 12,000. The death toll exceeds 8,000. Nevertheless, Health Minister Dr. Zweli Mkhize points out that the percentage of recoveries make up 64% – higher than the world average of 58.2%, which does inspire hope.

The US refusal to keep allocating funds for the World Health Organization (WHO) has become yet another step towards further confrontation between President Donald Trump and international organizations. However, the geopolitical importance of such a move goes beyond health-related issues and fits well into the current format of the US-China confrontation. Having accused the WHO of demonstrating inefficiency and excessive concern for the situation in China at the expense of other countries, the United States underscores the Chinese origin of COVID-19, thereby giving it to understand that the virus may have come from a laboratory.
As coronavirus pandemic continues to spread worldwide, the number of those infected is estimated at 2 million. While doctors across the world are fighting for the lives of those afflicted and governments in many countries are imposing quarantine measures in the form of self-isolation, the global attention is focused on the international scientific community, which is closely examining the virus in an attempt to produce an anti-coronavirus vaccine. According to President of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexader Sergeev, the entire world is fixated on science: for it is science that has the potential to drag the humanity out of this terrible crisis.

The current coronavirus pandemic in Europe threatens to damage the image of the EU in the eyes of residents of both EU member countries and countries seeking the EU membership.  Given this, a good example has been  demonstrated by the Serbian leadership, which initially pronounced integration with the EU as a top foreign policy priority but had to consider a whole range of factors that had a negative influence on such plans.​
The COVID-19 pandemic is by far and without any doubt top news today, pushing all other events to the background. Small wonder too, since the outbreak of the coronavirus infection affects us all and is comparable only to a destructive war or a global natural disaster. In a situation like this only the most doubting of Toms still ignore the hard fact that the only way humanity can possibly cope with this scourge, which knows no borders, ideologies, races and ethnicities, is to act as a single team, setting aside all conflicts, contradictions, local wars, and the policy of global dominion and sanctions.

The Covid-19 pandemic has covered 183 countries, afflicting more than 1.2 million people, killing more than 70 thousand and causing moral, psychological and material damage to almost all of humanity. Surprisingly, the coronavirus hit the developed countries the most. Although, it is possible that the tragic statistics on the number of infected and on the number of dead in these countries are the result of more accurate diagnosis of the disease.
