The number of deaths from corona virus has exceeded 200,000 on April 25, while the number of infections is expected to reach 3 million in the coming days, according to Reuters statistics.

More than half of the deaths were recorded in the US, Spain and Italy.

The first death related to the Covid-19 epidemic was reported on January 10 in Wuhan, China. It took 91 days for the number of deaths from the pandemic to exceed 100,000 and another 16 days for the number to reach 200,000, according to Reuters statistics from official records published by governments.

By comparison, 400,000 people worldwide die from malaria annually, one of the most deadly infectious diseases.

The United States has reported 52,400 deaths from Covid-19, as of April 25, while the number of deaths in Italy and Spain was recorded between 22,000-26,000 each.

Of the 20 countries most affected by the pandemic, Belgium has the highest mortality rate, with 6 deaths per 10,000 people, compared with 4.9 in Spain and 1.6 in the US.

About 8% of all recorded cases in the United States lead to death, while this figure in Spain and Italy is 10%.

However, this rate will be significantly lower if the total number of cases including cases is not reported because not everyone has symptoms to be tested.

The number of deaths in Asia and Latin America is more than 7,000. The Middle East also recorded 8,800 cases. This figure in Africa is about 1,350.

The number of deaths due to Covid-19 globally has continued to increase at a rate of 3-4% per day over the past 10 days, although that rate has slowed since the beginning of the month.

The actual death rate is expected to be higher because many countries do not include deaths recorded in nursing homes and other locations outside the hospital.
