The number of deaths in the world exceeds 890,000
The global death toll from the Corona virus has exceeded another grim milestone, exceeding 890,000, and researchers at Johns Hopkins University have confirmed 890,260 deaths.
The real number of deaths is likely to be higher, due to different testing rates and tariffs, time lags, and suspected underreporting in some countries.
Here are the 10 countries most affected by deaths:
- United States: 189166
- Brazil: 126.960
- India: 71,642
- Mexico: 67558
- United Kingdom: 41,643
- Italy: 35553
- France: 30732
- Spain: 29516
- Peru: 29,838
- Iran: 22410
Spain became the first country in Western Europe to surpass 500,000 cases
Sam Jones reports from Madrid, with Kim Welcher in Paris and Natalie Grover in London:
Spain has become the first country in Western Europe to record more than half a million cases of Covid-19, with a total of 525,549 infections, with fears also growing that cases will rise in France and the United Kingdom.
The Spanish achievement comes amid a steady spike in injuries as millions of children begin to return to school after a six-month break.
According to the latest figures released by the Ministry of Health, Spain recorded 49,716 new cases of infection in the past week, and 237 deaths. About a third of the new cases and deaths are in Madrid, the region worst affected by the epidemic.
Spain recorded the fastest rise in the number of daily confirmed cases in Europe, which began to rise in July, and France showed a similar increase beginning in August:

The number of deaths from the Corona virus in the world has exceeded 890,000, according to the Johns Hopkins University tracking. A death toll of over a million people seems inevitable at this point.
Meanwhile, Spain became the first European country to surpass 500,000 cases. The country reported 2,440 cases of the new Coronavirus during the past 24 hours, bringing the total to 525,549.
Recent infections have been more common among young adults who are often asymptomatic thanks to their strong immune system, and the death rate is still much lower than the March-April peak when daily deaths routinely exceeded 800.
