Europe has lost over 30,000 lives to the coronavirus pandemic, AFP reported. Italy accounts for more than a third of the grim number.

Just four days earlier, the 30,000 benchmark was surpassed by the entire world, which shows how quickly the deaths mount and how hard European nations suffer from the disease.

Apart from Italy, the highest numbers of deaths in Europe have been reported by Spain, France, the UK and the Netherlands.

The global coronavirus death toll has topped 40,000 on Tuesday, with the United States, China and Iran affected worst among non-European nations.

The virus poses greater threat to people with preexisting conditions and older patients, which is an apparent factor in why Europe’s comparatively older population suffers more than people in younger parts of the world. However many middle-aged and younger people develop serious symptoms too.
