GlobalData Epidemiologist Report: Global Covid deaths exceed 2.3 million – Russian figures may be inaccurate

By Paul Dennis

10 February

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 106,993,000, with over 2,343,000 deaths and 70,991,000 recoveries.

The US, India, and Brazil continue to lead the world in confirmed cases with the UK, Russia, France, Spain, and Italy following suit.

The order is likely to remain consistent in the near future as the US is followed by the UK, France, Spain, the Netherlands and Brazil in active cases.

India is the exception – ranking 21st on the global list of active cases.

Recently released data from the Federal Statistics Service in Russia revealed that Russia’s death toll in 2020 may have been up to three times as high as official government reports.

If these estimates are accurate, Russia’s death toll in 2020 would place it third, behind the US and Brazil.

2021 has been a turning point for Russia so far, however, as new cases have been declining since December.
