- The global death toll of COVID-19 has continually risen with the increasing number of confirmed cases.
- The deaths hit the 500,000 marker, with 10 million cases worldwide.
- This new levels came out right after government agencies started contemplating about reopening public places.
- Health officials believe that the grim figures suggest under- reporting of cases.
The global deaths from COVID-19 have gone beyond the 500,000 mark, says a report from the New York Times database. The grim marker was hit as the world’s total confirmed cases rose to 10 million.
Even as the world struggles with the aftereffects of the painful lockdown measures, new infections are still adding up to the total numbers.
Historically, the global growth rate of the infection had been at a hundred percent, but now public health officials say that the numbers may have been substantially underestimated.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the real numbers may actually be 10 times more than what was originally reported. In the United States and in other countries, earlier limitations in testing capabilities have significantly hampered the declaration of the correct figures.
The recent developments in COVID-19 testing may be the cause of the surging numbers but easing up on restrictions may bring an even larger wave of risks and actual infection. The possibility of renewed intensity of the spread of COVID-19 is forcing back plans of re-opening many places.
As the death tolls climb sharply in many countries, a lot of ‘worrisome factors’ are also keep cropping up. Whether it is the young ones who are becoming dynamic carrier or the old ones who have higher risk of death, COVID-19 is an enemy that is undeniably reducing populations everywhere.
A top CDC officer said: “We are not even beginning to be over this.”
Meanwhile, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey told the media:
“Our expectation is that our numbers will be worse. We’re going to continue to adjust based on what the data or the information says.”
