Global Covid-19 Death Toll Passes 3 Million As Cases Surge in Brazil And India.

More than three million people have died of Covid-19 globally since the beginning of the pandemic since late 2019, Johns Hopkins University said on Saturday.

The United State of America has the highest number of fatalities with 566,224 death toll, followed by Brazil with 368,749 and Mexico with 211,693.

According to World Health Organization (WHO), the pandemic was at a "critical point" and warned that the planet needed a reality check. After a decrease in March, the number of deaths worldwide is up again, with an average of roughly 12,000 deaths, approaching the 14,500 daily.

Thanks to the vaccination campaign, countries like the US and the UK have seen their number of latest daily deaths decreased since late January whereas India and Brazil face unprecedented surges in infections during those periods.

In Brazil, 3,000 deaths are reported daily , accounting for nearly quarter of the deaths reported daily around the world. The country has been the worst hit in the world in terms of latest daily deaths globally since the beginning of March 2021.

With 234,692 new infections reported on Saturday, India has on the brink of 3 times the daily cases of the US.
