The Corona virus has caused the death of at least 4,565,622 people in the world since the World Health Organization office in China reported the emergence of the disease at the end of December 2019.

The figures are based on daily reports issued by each country’s health authorities and exclude subsequent reviews by statistical agencies that indicate much higher death numbers.

The World Health Organization, taking into account the excess mortality rate directly or indirectly related to Covid-19, considers that the outcome of the epidemic may be two or three times greater than the officially announced outcome.
