US Todesopfer durch Covid-19 sind auf über 200.000 gestiegen
September 23, 2020 -
Die Vereinigten Staaten haben den traurigen Meilenstein von über 200.000 Toten durch das Coronavirus erreicht, damit ist Amerika das am stärksten betroffene Land der Welt, wie Daten der Johns Hopkins Universität beweisen.
The number of dead is based on figures supplied by state health authorities. But the real toll is thought to be much higher, in part because many Covid-19 deaths were probably ascribed to other causes, especially early on, before widespread testing.
For five months, America has led the world by far in sheer numbers of confirmed infections – nearly 6.9 million as of Tuesday – and deaths. The U.S. has less than 5 percent of the globe’s population but more than 20 percent of the reported deaths.
Brazil is No. 2 with about 137,000 deaths, followed by India with approximately 89,000 and Mexico with around 74,000.
