One million lives lost: World counts cost of COVID-19 pandemic

Al Jazeera, 29 Sep 2020
The global death toll from COVID-19 has crossed one million, according to data from Johns Hopkins University (JHU), but the World Health Organization (WHO) says the actual number of deaths is likely to be much higher.
Some 1,000,555 people across the world have now died from the virus, data from JHU showed on Tuesday.
About a fifth of the world’s coronavirus deaths have been in the United States.
The daily death toll is on the decline there, but there has been another surge in new infections, and with it fears of a second wave.
