With the rapid increase in the number of cases in Brazil and India, the number of cases of corona virus worldwide has reached close to 7 million.
According to the foreign news agency Reuters, about 30% of all these cases, about 2 million cases are from the United States, while the fastest spreading epidemic is in Latin America, where 16% of the total number of cases. ۔
The death toll from the corona virus has risen to 400,000 worldwide.
The United States accounts for about a quarter of all deaths worldwide, and the death toll in South America is rising sharply.
The death toll from the corona virus in five months has risen to one year from malaria, the world’s deadliest disease.
The first death from the corona virus was reported on January 10 in the Chinese city of Wuhan, but the number of deaths worldwide in early April exceeded 100,000, compared to 300,000 in just 23 days. One lakh increased to 4 lakh.
The highest death toll in the world was 110,000 in the United States, while the number of deaths in Brazil is also increasing rapidly.
Experts believe that the total reported is more than 400,000 because many countries do not have the capacity to test all infected patients and some countries are not including out-of-hospital deaths in the statistics.
