Just over a year later, that virus has claimed the lives of 2 million people around the world.

The worldwide coronavirus death toll surpassed 2 million on Friday, according to a Reuters tally, as nations around the world are trying to procure multiple vaccines and detect new Covid-19 variants.

The daily death toll has at times risen above 15,000 since December.

The death toll from COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the novel coronavirus, has doubled in about three and a half months since it passed the 1 million mark on September 29.

The two states of NY and IL have registered more than 1 million cases. Combined, the five countries contribute to nearly 50% of all Covid-19 deaths in the world but represent only 27% of the global population.
