COVID-19 Confirmed Cases in the OIC Member Countries (Daily Updates)

COVID-19 cases in the OIC countries increased by 19,653 new patients on 22 May 2020 making the total confirmed cases in all 56 coronavirus-infected OIC nations to 669,892 since the first OIC case was recorded on 24 January. Over 56% of the new cases were reported in the five countries that confirmed more than 1,000 new patients on the same day: Saudi Arabia (2,642), Pakistan (2,603), Iran (2,311), Qatar (1,830) and Bangladesh (1,694).

For the third day, Turkey continued to record less than 1,000 new cases which indicate a slowdown in the spread of COVID-19 especially given the rising number of recovered patients and reduced numbers of deaths in the West Asian nation, which has the largest number of confirmed cases among all OIC countries. Only seven of the infected member countries did not report new infections on 22 May while Turkmenistan remained coronavirus-free.

The recovery rate of COVID-19 patients in the OIC countries increased to 54.74% on 22 May, up by 0.2% from the day before, after forty-three member countries confirmed that 12,063 of their patients recovered on the same day. This brings the total of all OIC recoveries to 366,718 since the start of the pandemic. Eleven of the OIC countries reported more recoveries than new infections on 22 May while 26 of them had more than 50% recovery rates. No COVID-19 patients recovered in thirteen of the OIC nations.

Speaking of the deaths caused by the novel coronavirus, 318 of the patients in 25 OIC countries passed away on 22 May, bringing the death toll to 18,467. This figure accounts for 2.76% of all confirmed cases in the OIC countries, which is significantly lower than the global rate of 6.41% on the same day. While 31 of the infected OIC nations did not report any deaths on 22 May, Uganda and Mozambique remained the only member countries with COVID-19 infections that have not reported any coronavirus-related deaths so far.
