Statistics showed that the total global deaths due to the emerging corona virus exceeded 400 thousand, with the increase in cases in Brazil and India.
About a quarter of these deaths are in the United States, but deaths in South America are increasing rapidly.
Statistics showed that the number of deaths related to Covid-19 in just five months is now equal to the number of deaths annually from malaria, one of the most deadly infectious diseases in the world.
Globally, the number of infections is close to seven million, of which about two million, or 30 percent, are in the United States. The second largest outbreak in Latin America is more than 15 percent of cases, and the first recorded deaths of Covid-19 occurred on January 10 in Wuhan, China, but in early April the number of deaths exceeded 100,000, according to Reuters statistics based on official government reports. Within 24 days, the number of deaths rose from 300,000 to 400,000.
The highest death toll in the world is in the United States, at 110,000. In Brazil, deaths are rising rapidly, which could push it to second place globally in terms of the number of deaths currently occupied by Britain.
It is believed that the total number of deaths is greater than the official recorded which is 400 thousand, as many countries lack the equipment to examine all the victims, while some countries do not count the deaths that occur outside the hospitals.
