The angel of death has been working harder than ever in 2020. An excess of 850,000 deaths has been recorded during the Covid-19 pandemic, on top of the 56 million deaths expected in a “normal” year.

Among this figure were 3,000 health workers who lost their lives to Covid-19 as of mid-July 2020, according to Amnesty International. Indonesia alone has lost 200 health workers to the disease through 1 Sept. 2020.
