More than five-million people around the world have died of COVID-19.

BY The Canadian Press, Nov 1, 2021 4:39 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

More than five-million people around the world have now died of COVID-19.

Experts say that grim number is likely an undercount, because of limited testing and people dying at home.

It's a crisis that has not only devastated poor countries but also humbled wealthy ones.

The United States alone has recorded over 745-thousand lives lost, more than any other nation.

Together, the U-S, the European Union, Britain and Brazil account for one-eighth of the world's population but nearly half of all reported deaths.
