The number of deaths in the world may fluctuate widely from one year to the next. A rough estimate of annual deaths is 60,000,000 or about 2 every second.
About two-thirds of these deaths are in Asia, a little less than one-sixth in Europe, about one-tenth in Africa, and one-twelfth in the Western Hemisphere.
In comparison, there are about 3 births every second, as there are between 100 and 115 million babies every year. About three-fifths of the births are in Asia, one-eighth each in Europe and in the Americas, and one-tenth in Africa.
. . . power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill . . . (and) by these three plagues a third of mankind was killed . . . – Revelation 6:8, 9:18
