Global death toll from COVID-19 crosses 2 million mark amid vaccine rollout


Maryland: More than 2 million people have died globally due to coronavirus according to the latest tally by the Johns Hopkins University. It also said that a total of 93,518,182 people have been infected with the virus till now, after the first reported fatality in China last January. As per the latest Johns Hopkins University`s tally, 2,002,468 people have so far succumbed to the disease.The number of dead, compiled by Johns Hopkins University, is about equal to the population of Brussels, Mecca, Minsk or Vienna.
While the count is based on figures supplied by government agencies around the world, the real toll is believed to be significantly higher, in part because of inadequate testing and the many fatalities that were inaccurately attributed to other causes, especially early in the outbreak.
