Severe milestone for the epidemic: About six months after the first death in Wuhan, China, the number of deaths from corona in the world crossed the million mark today (Monday). This is half the time required to reach half a million deaths, with the previous figure being recorded last June.

In four countries – the United States, Brazil, India and Mexico – more than half of the deaths were recorded. The United States remains the leading country in morbidity, with 209,000 dead out of 7.3 million corona patients in the country, followed by India with 141,000 dead, Brazil with 96,000 dead and Mexico with 76,000 victims.

Meanwhile, data from the Ministry of Health in Israel determined that 3,426 new corona patients were diagnosed during Yom Kippur. The condition of 763 patients is defined as severe, of which 208 are respiratory. During the holiday, the number of victims in the country rose by 16 and now stands at 16.

The World Health Organization warned over the weekend that The global death toll from the corona virus could reach 2 million by the time the widespread use of the vaccine begins. According to Dr. Mike Ryan, director of the organization’s emergency health program, the number of casualties could reach even higher if countries around the world do not take significant steps to stem the spread.

“If governments do not act uniformly to suppress the corona, 2 million casualties is not an imaginary scenario. It is certainly inconceivable – but not impossible,” he said. “The time for action is now, in every aspect. Not just testing and locating, not just clinical care, not just social remoteness, maintaining hygiene, masks or vaccines. It should all be done together. We do not have to wait.
