I have been doing Data Analytics Studies on the Coronavirus Pandemic for 48 days and have written 119 research-based blog posts on COVID-19 in these 48 days.
The 20 countries in this Table are the ones which have reported the most number of COVID-19 related deaths till a few minutes ago. They comprise 226,349 COVID-19 deaths, which is 93.9% of total 240,974 deaths worldwide.
The Compounded Daily Growth Rate (“CDGR“) has been calculated for a 16-day period from April 16 to May 2, and the same CDGR has been applied to project the deaths on May 18; however, there may be changes based on the situation in each country over the next 16 days, or due to a difference in the exact time when data was reported on April 16 or today.
As you can see from the Table, Russia and Mexico have the highest CDGR, based on which both these countries are expected to move up 5 ranks in deaths. Peru, and Canada are expected to move up 3 ranks, while Brazil is expected to move up 2 ranks. UK is expected to move from Rank 3 to Rank 2.
As USA has a substantially higher death count than the current No.2 (Italy) and No.3 (UK), USA will maintain its No.1 position, even though it has a lower CDGR than UK. India is also expected to maintain its rank.
Germany, Belgium, France, Spain, and Italy are expected to go down 1 rank; Ireland, Sweden, Netherlands, and Iran down 2 ranks; China and Switzerland down 4 ranks.
