    The world officially recorded 1 million deaths from Covid-19, though health experts say the real tally might be almost double. The virus’s rapid spread and ability to transmit in people who show no signs of the disease have enabled it to outrun measures to accurately quantify cases through widespread diagnostic testing. The U.S. has by far the most recorded deaths, topping 200,000, with Brazil and India together accounting for over 200,000 more. Worldwide, the growth in the number of daily deaths has eased since spiking in March and April, helped by improved medical care and ways to treat the disease. But as resurgences flare in Europe and North America ahead of winter and the flu season, Covid-19 fatalities may rise again. Estimates of a higher death toll, would rank it among the top five causes for deaths globally based on historical figures.
