Óbitos por Covid-19 nos EUA atingem 200.000
September 23, 2020 -
Os EUA ultrapassaram o marco sombrio de 200.000 mortes por
coronavírus, fazendo dos Estados Unidos o país mais afetado do mundo, segundo dados da Universidade de Johns Hopkins.
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.
