Infectious Govit-19 Caused more than 5 million deaths worldwide from the office
China The disease was reported to have started at the end of December 2019, according to an estimate made by the AFP on Monday evening from official reports.
The report, which takes into account deaths recorded by national health authorities, actually covers only a fraction of deaths associated with the corona virus. Considering the high number of deaths directly and indirectly linked to Govt-19, the WHO estimates that the number of infections may be two to three times higher than officially recorded.
Divide according to continents
Although the number of daily deaths around the world is declining, for the first time in almost a year, below 8,000 in early October, the situation is different across the continent.
“The number of Govt-19 cases and deaths is rising for the first time in two months, which is due to the current increase in epidemics in Europe, which is higher than the decline seen in other parts of the world,” Tetros explained on Thursday. WHO Director-General Adanom Caprais during the press conference.
A record that is sometimes greatly underestimated
In the European region (52 countries and territories stretching from the Atlantic coast to Azerbaijan and Russia), the increase in the number of deaths is mainly due to the development of the situation in the East. In Russia in particular, an average of more than 1,000 people have died from Govt-19 every day since October 20, according to official figures reported daily.
According to officials, this record is often underestimated. Daily reports show a total of 239,693 deaths as of November 1, but Rosstad, the national statistical body with the broadest definition of coveted deaths, lamented the worst number at the end of September: nearly 450,000 deaths.
Higher numbers to the United States
After Russia, Ukraine and Romania are currently the two countries with the highest daily deaths in Europe, with an average of 546 and 442 deaths per day, respectively, in the last seven days. Latin America and the Caribbean are the worst-hit areas in the world (1,521,193 deaths since the outbreak). But the daily death toll, currently around 840, has been declining since May 2021.
In the United States, more than 1,400 deaths have been recorded each day on average over the past seven days, down 15% from the previous week. With a total of 746,747 deaths, the country bears the largest number of epidemics.
