We, covid-19, coronavirus, mortality

New data from the World Health Organization (WHO) have found evidence that the actual global death toll from COVID-19 is nearly three times higher than previously thought.

The news comes from the fact that one count of COVID deaths in the United States shows that the United States has exceeded one million.

About two months after the COVID-19 pandemic struck the United States on May 24, 2020, the New York Times solemnly commemorated the deaths of 100,000 Americans in the hands of the virus. The cover was covered In their name and a brief biography of 1,000 people, they call their death an “immeasurable loss.”

Two years later, the United States is approaching ten times that amount. NBC news count One million people died in COVID-19 on Wednesday.

But this number is Report several times Over the past few months, it has been difficult to track the actual number of deaths caused by the aerial respiratory virus, which mimics the common cold of influenza and its symptoms and can die through many weaknesses of the body. It shows that.
Some of those counts, like the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Mortality TrackerRecorded an excess of 1 million deaths in January 2022.
Thursday, WHO has released its own report Evidence of 14.9 million additional deaths was found between 2020 and 2021 for global over-deaths over the last two years. This is almost three times the official number.

“COVID-19-related excess mortality is used to quantify the direct and indirect effects of a pandemic.” Excess mortality “is the total number of deaths that have occurred and the lack of a pandemic, ie. , A scenario without COVID-19, “explained an agency linked to the United Nations.

According to the report, 20 countries, which make up 50% of the world’s population, account for more than 80% of the estimated global mortality rate over a 24-month period. The countries are Brazil, Colombia, Egypt, Germany, India, Indonesia, Iran, Italy, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Russia, South Africa, United Kingdom, Turkey, Ukraine, and the United States.

Most over-deaths were concentrated in Southeast Asia, Europe, the Americas, and middle-income countries, which account for 81% of over-deaths. High-income countries reported 15% and low-income countries reported 4%.

In India alone, where a devastating Covid wave struck the country in the spring of 2021, WHO found nearly 10 times more deaths than official figures. Report for July 2021 The same conclusion was reached according to the Center for Global Development, where the country lost about 4 million people at the time, but the latest WHO report suggests 4.74 million people.

“This cool data tells us that we need to invest not only in the effects of pandemics, but also in more resilient healthcare systems that can sustain essential healthcare services in the event of a crisis, including more powerful healthcare information systems. It shows, “said WHO Secretary-General Tedros Adanom Gebreyes. Said in a statement.
