Washington – More than 2.5 million people in the world have died of covid-19. This is the result of continuously updated statistics on the website of the American Johns Hopkins University (JHU), which monitors the development of the pandemic globally. According to these data, almost 113 million people became infected with coronavirus. The deadline in the death toll was reached almost a year after the World Health Organization (WHO) classified the SARS-CoV-2 virus situation as a pandemic.

However, experts assume that the actual number of infections and deaths is even higher.

A year ago, JHU registered almost 3,000 victims of the then new respiratory disease, which was first detected in China.

According to JHU, the world crossed the threshold of two million victims in mid-January. At that time, tests showed coronavirus infection in more than 93 million people.

JHU continuously updates data on infected and deaths from individual countries and their sums on its website. The official figures of the World Health Organization (WHO) are slightly lower. According to them, 2.49 million deaths and more than 112 million confirmed cases have been confirmed so far in connection with covid-19.

The new coronavirus was first seized more than a year ago in China, and a global pandemic erupted in full force last spring. According to JHU, so far most people have become infected in the United States, which has over 28 million infected. The second is India with more than 11 million infected. This is followed by Brazil (over ten million infected), Britain just ahead of Russia (both more than 4.1 million) and France (more than 3.7 million confirmed cases).

The United States has the highest number of victims of covid-19, over half a million. The second is Brazil with almost a quarter of a million deaths, and the third is Mexico, which has pushed India to fourth place with more than 180,000 dead, which still records over 156,000 deaths.
