WHO. The number of deaths due to Covid worldwide has reached 4,000,000.

According to data centralized by Johns Hopkins University, the number of deaths associated with Covid officially confirmed by

at the onset of the pandemic it recently exceeded the threshold of 4 million. However, several experts believe that the actual number of deaths is higher due to underestimation of data in many countries around the world.

The threshold of 4 million deaths was reached based on the centralization of data in the Member States. Most deaths have been recorded so far in:

The Director-General of WHO is of the opinion that this symbolic number

it has, in fact, been touched for a long time.

“We have just passed the critical threshold of four million deaths caused by Covid-19, a number that is certainly lower than the actual toll,” said WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

In this regard, since March 2020 China has been accused of underestimating the number of deaths due to Covid-19. However, there are other countries, including Brazil and Russia, which announce figures viewed with caution by specialists.

This lack of transparency has reduced the confidence of the scientific community in official figures. And the biggest suspicions

they are linked to rural areas in developing countries such as India or Brazil, which lack adequate health care.

The number of deaths due to Covid-19 continues to rise in many countries around the world, amid a resurgence in the number of associated infections and the emergence of new, more contagious variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the most worrying currently being delta (Indian).
