  • Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Covid Deaths Top 4 Million as India Eclipses U.S., U.K.” – below is their description.

    The global death toll from Covid-19 has reached 4 million, as a growing disparity in vaccine access leaves poorer nations exposed to outbreaks of more infectious strains.

    Even as rapid vaccine rollouts allow life to start to return to normal in countries like the U.K. and U.S., it’s taken just 82 days for the latest million deaths, compared to 92 days for the previous million, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. The real toll could be far higher than reported because of inconsistent calculations around the world.

    The developing world is shouldering a rising death toll. India accounted for 26% of the increase from 3 million to 4 million deaths, and Brazil about 18%. By comparison, the U.S., where more than 332 million shots have been administered, accounted for about 4% of the rise. The U.K. accounted for just 1,000 of the extra deaths, the data showed.
