Over 1.5 million people have lost their lives due to COVID-19 with one death reported every nine seconds on a weekly average, as vaccinations are set to begin in December in a handful of developed nations.

One third of the global deaths happened in the last two months. The worst affected country, United States, is currently battling a third wave of coronavirus infections.

Last week, more than 10,000 people in the world died on average every single day, which has been steadily rising each passing week.

The World Health Organisation said that Covid-19 caused more deaths in the past year than tuberculosis in 2019 and nearly four times the number of deaths due to malaria.
