La cifra global de muertes por coronavirus llega a 750.000
August 13, 2020 - El mundo alcanzó ya el sombrío umbral de 750.000 muertes confirmadas por la pandemia de coronavirus, mientras los países se preparan para una nueva ola de infecciones
According to figures from Johns Hopkins University, the United States is the worst affected nation, with more than 160,000 coronavirus deaths – about one-fifth of the world’s total – and a caseload of over five million.
Brazil is the only other nation to record more than 100,000 deaths linked to Covid-19. More than three million infections have also been identified.
Mexico, with more than 50,000 deaths, has the third-highest toll, closely followed by India and the UK.
More than 20 million Covid-19 cases have been confirmed worldwide, although the actual number is likely to be far higher as many infected people show no symptoms, scientists say.
