About 250,000 - 300,000 people die per day.

Calculations:

7 billion people on earth.

Average life expectancy is about 66.12 years ~ 24150 days

7 billion people ÷ 24,150 days is just less than 300k

However, life expectancy is increasing, and population is increasing, so the actual number should be lower than 300k.
