The institution reported on Monday the world death toll reached 5,425,000 and at least 197,116 people died from complications in the last 28 days.

The number of reported cases worldwide infected with SARS-CoV-2 rose to 246,743,962, the university indicated.

Secretary General of the United Nations António Guterres tweeted on Monday that the world exceeded the tragic milestone of five million lives lost due to the disease.

“We must continue to press for everyone to have access to urgently needed vaccines and treatments. Only together, with solidarity, will we overcome the pandemic,” he stressed.

The World Health Organization warned last week that cases and deaths from this cause were increasing globally for the first time in two months.

The general director of WHO, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, pointed out that this situation was driven by an increase in cases and deaths in Europe. “The pandemic persists in large part because unequal access to tools remains,” he said.
