After two years of Covid-19, WHO has finally released the estimated number of deaths worldwide in 2020 and 2021. WHO reports that approximately 15 million people have died over two years directly or indirectly due to Covid-19.

WHO provided a range of 13.3 million deaths to 16.6 million between Jan. 1, 2020, and Dec. 31, 2021, deaths that it said Thursday were caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Between Jan. 1, 2020, and Dec. 31, 2021, WHO published the report stating a range of 13.3 million deaths to 16.6 million. WHO now states that all these death were result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In a report released today, WHO said between January 2020 and December 2021, there were 4.7 million “excess” Covid deaths in India — the maximum number that’s 10 times the official figures and almost a third of Covid deaths globally. The global figure, according to the report, was 15 million — more than double the official figure of 6 million.

In 2020, India recorded 4,74,806 deaths as excess — meaning over and above normal — under the Civil Registration System.

India has strongly refuted the World Health Organization’s use of mathematical model to calculate the number of Covid deaths, saying the “figure is totally removed from reality”.

The new figure given by the World Health Organization also includes the deaths that occurred indirectly because of Covid-19. It includes deaths resulting from impact on health systems and society. For example, death occurred due to unable to access local doctors, death resulting from depression due to isolation or quarantine, etc.

The global death toll can be broken down into two categories. Out of total deaths 57 per cent accounts of males and 43 per cent accounts for females. The death toll is the highest among the older generation.

On the basis of nations, middle income nations reported the highest number of deaths, where as low income countries reported lowest number of deaths. High income countries reported for around 15 per cent of the total deaths worldwide.
