COVID-19 deaths worldwide as of September 28, 2020, by country

As of September 28, 2020, the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) had spread to six continents, and around one million people had died after contracting the respiratory virus. Over 35,800 of these deaths occurred in Italy.

Lockdowns are loosened but crisis is not over

Approximately 215 countries and territories worldwide have been affected by the COVID-19 disease. The risk of infection remains serious if you are in an area where there are confirmed cases. Many countries around the world have started to relax travel restrictions, but if you have recently visited a high-risk area or been in close contact with someone with the virus, you should seek medical advice and stay away from public places.

What are the symptoms of the virus?

It can take up to 14 days for symptoms of the illness to start being noticed. The most commonly reported symptoms are a fever and a dry cough, leading to shortness of breath. The early symptoms are similar to other viruses common at this time of year, such as the common cold and flu – these illnesses spread more during cold months, but it is not yet known whether or not temperature impacts the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Once again, medical advice should be sought if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.
