Muertes por Covid-19 en EUA pasan de 200.000
September 23, 2020 - Estados Unidos sobrepasó el nefasto hito de 200.000 muertes por coronavirus, lo que lo convierte en el país más duramente afectado del mundo hasta ahora, ssegún datos de Johns Hopkins University.
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.
