I have been doing Data Analytics Studies on the Coronavirus Pandemic for 72 days and have written 128 research-based blog posts on COVID-19 in these 72 days.
USA’s death toll due to Covid-19 has crossed 100,000, which is 28.63% of the approximately 349,300 global deaths due to the pandemic. More than 44.2% of the total deaths in America are from the Tri-States area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
The Mortality Rate (number of deaths as a percentage of infected cases) in USA is 5.84%, which is slightly lower than the global average of 6.2%.
Amongst the countries which have crossed 30,000 Covid_19 cases, Belgium has the highest Mortality Rate of 16.25%, followed by France at 15.54%, Italy at 14.29%, UK at 13.97%, Netherlands at 12.85%, Sweden at 11.98%, Mexico at 10.74% and Spain at 9.5%. Of these 29 countries, Qatar has the lowest Mortality Rate of 0.059%, with Singapore second at 0.071%. It will be interesting to know why 7 of the 8 countries with the highest Mortality Rates are European and why Qatar and Singapore have such few deaths.
As of 2:30 pm UTC today, 45 countries and territories reporting deaths in Europe account for the most number of deaths at 169,051 (Mortality Rate of 8.75%), with North America second at 115,351 (Mortality Rate of 6.04%) with 29 countries and territories reporting deaths. While 42 countries and territories in Asia account for 28,008 deaths (Mortality Rate of 2.81%), only 13 countries and territories in South America account for 32,653 deaths (Mortality Rate of 4.97%). Africa – with 50 countries and territories reporting deaths – have so far only reported 3,514 deaths (Mortality Rate of 2.96%). It will be equally interesting to find out why Asia has such a low Mortality Rate.
India has a Mortality Rate of 2.89%, which is a slight notch above the Asian average.
