As of 09 December, the World Health Organization (WHO) is reporting a total of 1,557,385 confirmed COVID-19 deaths worldwide. This global death number figure is gathered and compiled on a daily basis from the relevant national health authorities of each WHO member country.
What will be the total number of confirmed COVID-19 deaths globally by the end of 2021?
The WHO COVID-19 Dashboard will be consulted on 1 January 2022 for confirmed death data reported by the WHO up to 31 December 2021. If their dashboard is not being actively updated at that time, then the latest weekly WHO situation report will be consulted.
