It is not possible to calculate it correctly at the time of calculation, but I can assure you that the current numbers make Kovid’s actual calculation smaller. ‘
The Corona epidemic killed the most people in the United States – two hundred and five thousand 72 people. It is followed by Brazil (1 lakh 42 thousand 57), India (95 thousand 542), Mexico (6 thousand 430) and United Kingdom (42 thousand 90).
