Central and South America, together after Europe, are the most affected region by the coronavirus, AFP news agency reports based on its own census.
In Latin America, 144,758 deaths have been reported from the virus, more than the 144,023 deaths registered in the US and Canada.
202,505 deaths have been recorded in Europe, making the official death toll the highest. The number of infections and deaths is likely to be higher everywhere because not everyone has been tested.
Brazil has been the hardest hit in Latin America. In that country, at least 72,100 people died from the virus. Mexico follows with 35,006 deaths.
Mexico has had more corona deaths since Monday than Italy.
The United States has the most deaths and infections in the world.
