I have been doing Data Analytics Studies on the Coronavirus Pandemic for 26 days now. The 23 countries chosen for this particular Study have reported the highest number of cases (minimum 6,000) and represent 89.6% of all COVID-19 cases worldwide.
This study compares the percentage of recoveries and deaths in these 23 countries. The KEY is the DIFFERENCE in the last column. I have not seen any similar study anywhere, and I read a lot every day.
If we ignore China, whose figures no one believes in any case, why do South Korea, Australia, Iran, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and Spain have such high recovery rates and relatively low death rates, putting them on the top of the chart in terms of the difference between recoveries and deaths?
Similarly, why do UK, Netherlands, Sweden, Brazil, Ireland, Portugal, and Norway have such low recovery rates and thus negative difference figures?
If any researchers, scientists or healthcare professionals are able to find these answers, we will possibly move faster towards a cure for this deadly pandemic.
