Last week two milestones were reached on the very same day. The official worldwide number of COVID-19 deaths hit two million and the number of visitors to "Yorkshire Pudding" since June 2005 reached the same figure. That's a lot of "hits".
It's as if the entire population of Perth (Western Australia) or Minsk (Belarus) have either died from the virus or they have visited my blog. I would like to think that the latter might have been a better choice though some contrarians might disagree with that. Ah well, I know that I tried my best.
It is likely that COVID has in fact claimed the lives of far more than two million people. Calculation in western countries is pretty comprehensive but what about more challenging, less developed countries like Malawi, Bolivia, India or Egypt? In such countries accurate tallying is far more problematic. Maybe we will never know the true death figure.
Thanks to Yorkshire Pudding visitors past and present for tarrying here from time to time. Much appreciated. Onward to three million.
