According to a total from official sources obtained by AFP at 1000 GMT on Monday, over 3,543,125 people have been killed and at least 170,244,860 cases of the coronavirus have been registered since the outbreak in China in December 2019.
Because of the increased mortality directly and indirectly connected to Covid-19, the World Health Organization predicts that the pandemic’s overall toll could be two to three times higher than official data.
The vast majority of people have healed, while some have had symptoms for weeks or even months. The data are based on daily reporting from each country’s health authority. They do not include modifications made by other statistics organizations, which reflect a substantially greater number of deaths.
