Currently, there are 10,000 deaths per day in the world, well below the world record set in January 2021 (with an average of 14,800 deaths per day), but 30% more than the number of burial summer starts (7,800 cases in early July).
The United States again tops the list of countries with the highest average mortality (1,290 deaths) in the last 7 days. The death toll reached 3,380 in January but dropped to 200 by the beginning of the summer (burial). The United States is now facing a wave of delta variation, which was identified in India in April and is present in almost all countries of the world.
The United States has been the hardest hit by the virus since the beginning of the epidemic, with 637,539 deaths and 38,798,963 cases from Covid-19. It is followed by Brazil (579,308 deaths, 20,741,815 sick) and India (438,210, 32,737,939).

To prevent the spread of the virus, the leaders of the most developed countries opted for vaccines, but their supply and vaccination caused great disparities: for every 100 citizens given only 7 doses in Africa, 99 in Europe and 111 in the United States.
In addition, vaccines against the delta type are less effective: according to a study released last week by U.S. health officials in the United States where the effectiveness of the Pfizer / Bioendech and Moderna vaccines is 91% to 66%. But vaccines can still be very effective in preventing serious reactions to the disease.
