Corona Virus World Dead Approaching 1 Million September 28 at 7:25 PM
The total number of people who died of the new coronavirus has exceeded 990,000 world-wide, approaching one million. The death toll per day has increased to about 5,000 since April, and if you look at the population per 100,000 people, the number of people who die in South American countries has increased.
According to a summary by Johns Hopkins University in the U.S., the total number of people who died of the new coronavirus was 99,7966 and 1 million people world-wide as of 6 p.m. Japan time.
The highest number of people who have died
204,758 people in the U.S.
Brazil then had 141,741
India has 95,542 people.
The world’s single-day death toll soared in March, with a temporary decline in the number of people per day from late May to early June, but has recently increased to about 5,000 a day.
In addition, if you look at people who died per 100,000 people in countries with a high number of infected people, the most common is as of 4 p.m. on the 27th.
Approximately 100 people in Peru, South America
Approximately 68 people in Brazil
There are about 67 people in Chile and Spain, and the number is increasing in countries where infection is spreading, especially in the poor in South America.
The death toll per 100,000 people has not changed significantly in recent months in European countries, but it continues to grow in countries in the Americas and the North and South Americas, such as the United States, Brazil, Colombia, and Argentina, where the spread of infection continues.
Why is mortality higher in South America?
In South America, such as Brazil and Peru, the infection of the new coronavirus is spreading mainly among the poor, and the mortality rate is higher than in other regions.
Peru is the first country in South America to begin PCR testing and has strict curly outings, but about 800,000 people have been infected and more than 32,000 have died.
It is thought that the infection is spreading mainly in the poor background, and even if it is found to be positive by the examination, it is often not possible to take sufficient isolation measures from the problem of the living environment, and the medical system such as a small number of ventilators is not in place.
In Brazil, the spread of infection continues, especially in the poor, and tests carried out last month in the poor district of Sao Paulo, the largest city, found that more than a third of the 2,000 residents were positive.
Because the sanitary environment is not sufficient in such a poor area, the infection spreads easily, and it is thought that it refuses to go to the hospital because it is misunderstood that “It is likely to become infected if it goes to the hospital”, and it is often carried after it becomes severe, and such a thing is thought to have led to a high mortality rate.
In South America, more and more countries are gradually resuming economic activity without waiting for the infection to converge due to worsening economic conditions, and there are concerns about the further spread of the infection.
Expert “Very big impact”
As for the number of people who died of the new coronavirus approaching one million people world time, Professor Ihiro Shibata of Toho University, the president of the Infectious Diseases Society of Japan, said, “At the time of the new influenza in 2009, the world’s death toll was estimated to be about 280,000, but compared to that, We think it will have a significant impact on the death toll of the new coronavirus, which is about to reach one million. Even now, more than 1,000 people die a day in some countries, and the death toll is expected to increase in the future. We must continue to think about how to control the risk of infection not only in Japan but also around the world.”
