- Hundreds of thousands of people have now died as a result of coronavirus in the world
- This grim milestone comes just after a year the world got introduce to the virus
- However, it is believed that people who die without a firm diagnosis may not be included
As the world continues to suffer from the devastating effect of coronavirus, the official global death toll from the pandemic has finally surpassed 2 million on Friday, January 15.
This is according to Johns Hopkins University, CNN reports.
Meanwhile, experts believe that the 2 million figure might not be the real death toll.
According to them, the number of people lost to the virus might be much higher because only confirmed Covid-19 deaths are included in the tally.
This means that people who die without a firm diagnosis may not be included.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that as Nigeria continues to battle the second wave of the dreaded coronavirus federal authorities in the country are trying to reduce the possibility of mass infections.
On Friday, January 15, the federal ministry of health released new protocols for religious centres to adhere to.
The protocols include 12 updated guidelines for religious gatherings to follow to minimise the spread of coronavirus.
Also, as part of the new guidelines, the federal government has suspended assembly and visiting days in all the schools.
Similarly, the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) on Friday, January 15, announced that it has shifted the date for the reopening of camps across Nigeria.
This was revealed by NYSC's director-general, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim, during a sensitisation webinar for the 2020 Batch B Stream II corps members.
Legit.ng had also reported that vaccines to prevent COVID-19 are perhaps the best hope for ending the pandemic which has held the world hostage since 2020.
Nigeria is yet to receive any vaccine, but federal authorities say the first batch will arrive in the country in March 2021.
While a lot of Nigerians are looking forward to the vaccines, others are indifferent, while some others simply don't care.
