THE global number of deaths related to Covid-19 passed the three million mark today, according to Reuters.
The news agency’s tally shows that it took more than a year for the coronavirus death toll to reach two million, but then just three months for it to reach the grim new milestone.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) said that the more infectious strains found in Britain and South Africa were largely to blame, but also pointed to public fatigue with lockdown restrictions.
Brazil is leading the world in the daily average number of new deaths reported, accounting for one in every four deaths worldwide each day, Reuters said.
WHO epidemiologist Maria Van Kerkhove recently warned that many of the South American country’s intensive care units are more than 90 per cent full.
India reported a record rise in infections on Monday, becoming the second country after the United States to post more than 100,000 new cases in a day.
Britain, Russia, France, Italy and Germany make up some 60 per cent of Europe’s total coronavirus-related deaths, Reuters found.
