As of Thursday, the number of deaths recorded in the Covid-19 pandemic was close to 2 million. The real degree is much worse.
According to the “Wall Street Journal” analysis of data from 59 countries and regions, more than 2.8 million people died as a result of the pandemic. This statistical information provides the most comprehensive information about the global impact of the pandemic. The death toll in these places last year was more than 12% higher than the average.
Less than two-thirds of the growth is directly attributable to Covid-19. Public health experts believe that, if not the majority, there are many additional deaths directly related to the disease, especially in the early stages of the pandemic because of sparse testing. Some of these additional deaths are due to indirect effects, interruptions in healthcare, people avoiding hospitals, and other problems.

These countries together accounted for about one-quarter of the world’s population, but by the second half of last year, the total number of deaths reported from Covid-1
Statistics show that there are more than 821,000 deaths not included in the government’s official Covid-19 death toll.
