Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nationalreview.com: “COVID-19 Death Toll Surpasses 3 Million Worldwide | National Review”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

More than three million people across the world have died since the pandemic began last year, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

“This is not the situation we want to be in 16 months into a pandemic, where we have proven control measures,” said Maria Van Kerkhove, one of the World Health Organization’s leaders on COVID-19.

The United States leads the world in COVID deaths — 566,224 —  followed by Brazil with 368,749 and Mexico with 211,693.

Brazil’s daily death toll, at an average of 3,000 deaths, accounts for almost a quarter of the deaths reported daily worldwide.

The Associated Press notes that “The number of lives lost, as compiled by Johns Hopkins University, is about equal to the population of Kyiv, Ukraine; Caracas, Venezuela; or metropolitan Lisbon, Portugal. It is bigger than Chicago (2.7 million) and equivalent to Philadelphia and Dallas combined.”
