Coronavirus death toll hits 1 M worldwide.

The biggest pandemic in 100 years has notched up another milestone: a million deaths around the world.

The death toll hit 100,000 in mid April as the virus took hold in Europe, and 500,000 in late June.

Most of the dead have been older people. A review published in Nature in late August concluded that mortality climbs after 50 and climbs steeply after 60.

After age — by far the biggest risk factor — comes sex, with males more at risk than females.

Some of the dead have been famous, including former US presidential hopeful Herman Cain, stage magician Roy Horn from longtime Las Vegas illusionist duo Siegfried and Roy and comedian Tim Brooke-Taylor, best known as one of the trio The Goodies.

By January 2020, the virus had spread throughout China, eventually reaching all of China's 31 provinces.

Widespread testing and strict lockdowns helped bring the outbreak under control and China still has fewer than 91,000 cases and only 4,739 official deaths.

The first case outside China was discovered in Thailand on January 15, before the virus quickly spread to Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.

South Korea was hit hard by late February before the first outbreak was brought under control.

Smaller outbreaks over following months kept cases at fewer than 100 a day before a surge of new cases at the beginning of August continued into September.

India is an exception

India remained relatively untouched by COVID-19 for several months, not passing 1,000 confirmed cases until late March.

But India is now very close to overtaking the US as the worst-hit country for total cases.

However, its mortality rate is among the world's lowest, a statistic Nathan Grills, a public health expert at the University of Melbourne, attributes to a relatively young population with a median age of 27 and life expectancy of 68.

Purely on the basis of its population — 1.3 billion — it was to be expected that India would eventually overtake the US for most cases.

Europe was the next big breakout — and it's not over yet

Italy was the first European country to be hit by the novel coronavirus. On January 28, two visitors from Wuhan were placed in isolation in a hospital in Rome.

Italy's first local case visited his GP on February 16. Unprecedented lockdowns followed, but local governments resisted these measures at first.

In March, Europe became the virus's global epicentre and hospitals in Italy had to decide who would receive the use of limited medical supplies, and who would be left to die.

Cases in Italy peaked by mid March and the country's case total (now about 310,000) has since been eclipsed by the United Kingdom (almost 440,000), France (over 550,000) and Spain (over 715,000).

Spain and France saw cases begin to take off in March, but had their first outbreaks under control by May.

However, both countries are now well into a second wave, with case numbers continuing to rise.

Italy is showing a much smaller second wave but still has more deaths (over 35,000) than Spain or France (both over 31,000), but not the UK (over 42,000).

In the UK, it appeared Prime Minister Boris Johnson's administration had made a decision to tolerate the spread of the virus in pursuit of herd immunity before ramping up the response when modelling estimated 250,000 deaths.

The Americas fell next

Central and South America have been hit hard and show high fatality rates.

Brazil is third for total cases worldwide with more than 4,730,000 confirmed infections, but it is second for most fatalities, with more than 141,000.

Colombia and Peru have both recorded more than 800,000 cases but death numbers compare to European countries with more than 25,400 and 32,100, respectively.

However, US neighbour Mexico, with more than 730,000 cases, has recorded more than 76,400 deaths.

Those three countries have passed their peak for new infections.

Latin America's worst outbreak at the moment is in Argentina, where cases are continuing to climb past 710,000 and the death toll of 15,700 is growing rapidly.

But it is still the US that has the highest number of cases — more than 7,115,000 — and fatalities, passing the 200,000 mark last week. Both figures are close to one fifth of the global totals.

One US state has recorded more deaths than most countries

New York experienced the first big outbreak in the US, and still tops the country for the number of deaths.

With an estimated population of 19.4 million, the state of New York has recorded at least 31,300 deaths — comparable with Spain (population 46.94 million), France (66.99 million) and Peru (31.99 million)

In fact, if New York was counted as a separate country, it would have the seventh-most deaths.

In second place, its neighbour New Jersey (8.88 million people) has recorded more than 16,100 deaths, followed by Texas with a population of 29 million people and a COVID-19 death toll of more than 15,700.

California, the US's most populous state with 39.51 million people — more than a tenth of the national population of 328.2 million — has reached 15,608 deaths.

However, New York and New Jersey were hit hard early and their fatality counts have since slowed considerably, while California, Texas and Florida (21.48 million people, more than 14,000 fatalities), have seen fatality numbers start to slow and then accelerate.

Australia has fared better than US states

[dw aust compare to states]

If Australia were a US state, it would come in at 34th in a list of states by the number of people who have died, between Oklahoma (1,006 deaths from its population of 4 million people) and New Mexico (870 deaths from 2.1 million residents).

Australia's population of 24.99 million is much closer to Texas, which has recorded 15,745 deaths from 29 million residents.

Death rates are dropping

[dw fatalities]

The case fatality rate varies dramatically between countries, depending on factors including the capacity of its health system and capacity for mass testing.

To date, 3 per cent of those infected with COVID-19 have died.

Thanks in large part to far greater testing globally than earlier in the pandemic, that is a significant drop on case fatality rates earlier in the pandemic.

For example, since June, Italy's case fatality rate has dropped from 14.5 per cent to 11.6 per cent.

A million dead, billions left worse off

Mortality does not tell the whole story of the impact of COVID-19.

More than 32 million others have caught the virus and survived.

Throughout the course of the pandemic, we have learned more about long-term health effects, including  and sometimes debilitating lingering symptoms.

Then there is the financial toll as the world's economies ground to a halt; families torn apart across states or countries; life milestones left uncelebrated; jobs lost.

But for the millions who have lost someone dear to them, this pandemic has left a hole that cannot be replaced.
