La stima – è stato spiegato – è prudente, quindi i dati sarebbero stati stimati al ribasso. Stimati perché, in molti Paesi, non ci sono numeri certi. Secondo l’Organizzazione mondiale della sanità (Oms), oltre ai 5,4 milioni di morti registrati nel mondo per il Covid, ce ne sarebbero il doppio per le conseguenze indirette della pandemia, tra cui – ad esempio – per l’interruzione dei servizi sanitari legata all’infezione. Complessivamente, quindi, le morti dirette e indirette si aggirerebbero, globalmente, tra i 13,3 e i 16,6 milioni. La maggior parte dei decessi è avvenuta nei Paesi a medio reddito, come Perù, Ecuador, Bolivia e Messico. Lo studio, coordinato da William Msemburi, è stato pubblicato sulla rivista scientifica Nature.
