It took nine months for the world to record the first 1 million deaths from the novel coronavirus but only three months to go from 1 million to 2 million deaths, illustrating an accelerating rate of fatalities.

The global death toll from the coronavirus pandemic has surpassed 2 million.

Although vaccination against the coronavirus is under way in some countries including Britain and the United States, it remains uncertain whether vaccines will be fully distributed to all the countries that need it, particularly the poorest ones.

U.S. COVID-19 cases reached 20 million on January 1, and the number since then has increased by 1 million every four days.

There have been almost 100 million infections globally.

California reported 2,821,512 cases, followed by Texas with 2,032,809 cases and Florida with 1,517,472 cases.

"It's certainly unimaginable, but it's not impossible", Dr. Mike Ryan, WHO executive director, said on September 25.

By 1 April, the global death toll could approach 2.9 million, according to a forecast from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.

Hospitals and clinics are running short of beds and other medical supplies amid a resurgence in the number of coronavirus cases in many countries.

As grim as the latest figures sound, the actual case and death totals are likely much higher, as many countries do not have extensive testing - and others, like Russian Federation, have been suspected to underreport COVID cases and deaths. More than 35 million doses have been administered in 49 countries so far.

The outbreak in the US continues to worsen.
