This morning while browsing my usual places I checked the Worldometers and realised that yet another milestone had been hit. According to the site over 4 million people have lost their lives to the pandemic. The numbers as at today are:
|185,391,452 Total Cases||4,009,227 Deaths|
The USA still sits at the top spot when it comes to the number of deaths, with the UK at 7th spot and South Africa number 16. Unfortunately reports are that South Africa is having a surge of cases in the province where I used to live (Gauteng – 718 846 confirmed cases) and the country is on adjusted alert level 4 from 28 June 2021. Back in the UK the vaccination drive continues and as we see a surge in the Delta variant it is hoped that the vaccinations will help keep deaths down as regulations are slackened on the 19th.
