The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation says the epidemic has killed an estimated 6.9 million people more than the estimated 3.25 million.
The COVID-19 epidemic has killed an estimated 6.9 million people worldwide, more than double the legal limit, according to a recent study from the University of Washington, DC’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME).
The death toll is said to be high in many countries only to record what happens in hospitals or patients with chronic illnesses, a report released Thursday, revealed.
Recent estimates have shown that more than 155 million people worldwide have a population of at least 3.25 million, according to a study by the University of Johns Hopkins.
IHME is an independent health research organization that has a similar approach to global problems and has previously been mentioned by the White House and its reports are overseen by health officials.
The reported COVID-19 deaths are closely related to the high number of tests in the country, IHME said.
“If you don’t try harder, you will miss the death of COVID,” Christopher Murray, director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, told reporters briefly.
IHME estimates that all COVID-19 deaths compared to deaths due to pre-epidemic epidemics are the actual number of deaths during the epidemic.
In the United States, this estimate estimates that over 905,000 COVID-19 deaths. Statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Wednesday estimate that 575,491 people have died from the coronavirus virus.
The CDC did not immediately respond to a media request from Reuters to comment on the report.
The report only covers deaths caused by the virus, not deaths caused by the outbreak of health and community health.
“Many countries have made significant efforts to quantify the prevalence of the disease but our analysis shows how difficult it is to accurately track the rapidly spreading infectious diseases,” Murray said.
Meanwhile, India reported on Thursday that more than 400,000 coronavirus infections within 24 hours, while the death toll had risen to 3,980.
The South Asian population has surpassed 21 million cases, supported by a new record of 412,262. The death toll from COVID-19 is now 230,168, the Ministry of Health data showed.
Questions from traditional healers and community leaders Participants in the census study revealed that the actual death toll could be higher than the official census count.
