Since the first known case of COVID-19 in South America was confirmed until now, a total of 377,436 infected people and 20,044 deaths have been officially registered.
Currently 10,341 people are critically hospitalized and fortunately 130,939 have already been recovered. Let us remember that these data are the officially offered by different administrations from South America.
The current population of South America is 423,581,078, based on latest World Bank and United Nations data.
In South America, the rate of infection stands at 89.11 cases per 100,000 people, therefore, as of today, it is estimated that the 0.0891% of the population is officially infected.
World Health Organization (WHO) has estimated that the coronavirus kills about 3.4% of the people it infects. But that death rate varies between countries and across age groups. It’s also likely to change over time.
Comparing WHO estimations against the South America death rate, over the total number of patients, which is 5.31%, we see a difference of 1.91%.
