In short, this article highlights the crucial point that most nations have been under-reporting the number of tested-positive cases, as well as the number of deaths. Meanwhile, 'official' report shows nearly 20 million are now confirmed infected, with ~60% recovered. The average daily infected and death rates are 280,000 and 7,000 respectively.

The population in Africa is slightly less than that of India. Its number of 1 million infected (mostly in South Africa at the moment) is half that of India, albeit with a much smaller number of deaths.

For sure, worse will yet to come. No procrastination..
