New Delhi, Sep 29: The worldwide death toll from the Corona has eclipsed 1 million, according to Johns Hopkins University of Medicine, which has been tracking the pandemic across the globe.
More than 33 million cases have been confirmed around the world; the U.S. leads all nations in the number of cases — more than 7.1 million — and more than 205,000 dead. India is second in the number of cases, at more than 6 million, but Brazil is second in the number of deaths, at more than 142,000.
India is third and Mexico fourth, with more than 76,000.
The pandemic’s toll of 1 million dead in such a limited time rivals some of the gravest threats to public health, past and present.
