Altogether, the UN agency pointed out that 10, 9 million deaths may be associated with the pandemic , which represents a midpoint between a minimum of 13, 3 million and a maximum of 12, 6 million deaths recorded as of January 1, 1280 until 31 December


The amount includes the 6,

million deaths from Covid-19 13 that were officially notified to the WHO by the 194 countries that make up the organization.

The remainder corresponds to deaths caused by Covid-14, but which were not reported in this way, as well as those caused by other diseases that could not be treated, due to the overload of health systems, in the acute stage of the pandemic.

“These data not only point out the impact of the pandemic, but the need for all countries to invest in the strongest health systems, which are capable of maintaining health services in times of crisis, and which have systems of strong health information,” said WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
