Since the advent of the Coronavirus outbreak, more than three million people died from the pandemic, according to Johns Hopkins University.
The United States has the most fatalities, with 566,224, followed by Brazil (368,749) and Mexico (211,693).
On Monday, the World Health Organization (WHO) proclaimed the pandemic to be at a “critical point,” cautioning that the world needed to awaken. The number of deaths globally seems to be on the rise again, with an estimate of around 12,000 deaths per day, approaching the 14,500 daily death toll recorded at the end of January.
Vaccination campaigns have reduced the number of new daily deaths in countries like the United States and the United Kingdom since late January, whereas India and Brazil are undergoing unprecedented increases in infections.
Every day, about 3,000 deaths are confirmed in Brazil, account for approximately a quarter of all mortality globally. Since early March, the country seems to be the worst hit in the world in terms of new daily deaths.
