Coronavirus Global Death Toll Tops 1 Million
The number of people killed by COVID-19 has surpassed 1 million, according to the widely cited Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center. The center put the total number of infections worldwide at more than 33 million.
COVID-19 is the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, which is believed to have originated in Wuhan, China, late last year.
As the pandemic reached the grim milestone, a World Health Organization (WHO) official said the actual toll is probably higher.
"If anything, the numbers currently reported probably represent an underestimate of those individuals who have either contracted COVID-19 or died as a cause of it," Mike Ryan, the WHO's top emergencies expert, said at a briefing in Geneva.
President Donald Trump on Monday promised to make 150 million rapid COVID-19 tests available. He said the “massive and groundbreaking expansion” of testing would help protect the elderly in nursing homes, allow schools to reopen more safely, and help get the economy back on track.A Palestinian girl wearing a protective face mask sits in a box on the back of a bicycle amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) crisis, in Gaza City.
Trump had previously said he wanted to slow testing down because discovering more cases could make it appear the disease is spreading faster.
WHO announced that 120 million rapid diagnostic tests for the coronavirus will be made available to low- and middle-income countries.
WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said manufacturers Abbott and SD Biosensor are working in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to "make 120 million of these new, highly portable and easy-to-use rapid COVID-19 diagnostic tests available over a period of six months."
End is not near
In the United States, Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told NBC, “We're nowhere near the end” of the coronavirus pandemic.
Redfield also repeated his argument that wearing a mask can be just as effective as a vaccine.
"If every one of us did it, this pandemic would be over in eight to 12 weeks," Redfield said.
Dr. Chris Murray, director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington, told CNN an expected “huge surge” in coronavirus infections in October in the United States is also expected to continue in November and December.A health worker, right, wearing protective suit performs exercise with COVID-19 patients at at Patriot Candrabhaga stadium which is recently turned into isolation center for people showing symptoms of the disease, in Bekasi,Sept. 28, 2020.
