By BBN Staff: As the COVID-19 pandemic rages on worldwide, Reuters reports that over a half million have lost their lives to the virus.

“The death toll from COVID-19 surpassed half a million people on Sunday, according to a Reuters tally, a grim milestone for the global pandemic that seems to be resurgent in some countries even as other regions are still grappling with the first wave,” Reuters said in an article published today.

Reuters said that, as of Sunday, June 28, 2020, the total number of people that have died from COVID-19 complications stood at 501,000, while the number of confirmed cases globally had exceeded 10.1 million. The article noted that around 4,700 people are dying every 24 hours from COVID-19-linked illness, based on an average from June 1 to 27; which averaged out to 196 people per hour, or one person every 18 seconds.

Reuters noted that the overall rate of death has flattened in the past few weeks but there are concerns about the surge in new cases in several countries including the United States, India, and Brazil. Health experts are also concerned about new outbreaks in parts of Asia.

“About one-quarter of all the deaths so far have been in the United States, the Reuters data shows. The recent surge in cases has been most pronounced in a handful of Southern and Western states that reopened  earlier and more aggressively. U.S. officials on Sunday reported around 44,700 new cases and 508 additional deaths,” Reuters added.

Confirmed cases in Latin America are also growing swiftly, surpassing Europe on Sunday and making it the second-worst hit region affected by the pandemic.
