In just under three months, the number of corona deaths known globally has risen from three to four million. That’s according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

More than four million people have already died worldwide after being infected with the Sars-CoV-2 virus since the start of the corona pandemic. This was revealed on Wednesday evening by data from Johns Hopkins University (JHU) in Baltimore. This brought the number of globally known corona deaths from three million to four million in just under three months.

The data compiled by JHU is often closer in time to infection events than official figures and has proven to be fundamentally consistent and coherent. The university’s homepage is regularly updated with incoming data and shows a higher level than the official figures of the World Health Organization (WHO). In some cases, however, the numbers have been temporarily revised downward again. According to WHO, there have been 3.98 million confirmed deaths and nearly 184 million known infections to date.

In absolute numbers, the most Corona deaths have been reported so far in the USA. In this country of 330 million inhabitants, around 605,000 people have died since the beginning of last year. Brazil follows in second place with 525,000 deaths, and populous India is in third place with a good 400,000 deaths. In Germany, according to the Johns Hopkins data, a good 91,000 corona deaths have occurred so far.
