Covid killed around 15 million people around the globe


According to the World Health Organisation, Covid-19 claimed the lives of around 15 million people throughout the world in 2020 and 2021. This is considered to be the worst pandemic in a century.

It continues to claim the lives of thousands of people each week. The numbers are extremely sensitive and they reflect on how the crisis was handled by authorities around the world.
Samira Asma, data chief of WHO said that we need to honour the lives lost and hold ourselves and the policy makers accountable.
WHO declared Covid an international public health emergency in January 2020, after cases of the virus spread out of China. Around 82 percent of the deaths were estimated to be of people over 60 years of age.
