I was going to post in the China thread but i see it got closed
Good thing political agendas are not accepted –
Anyway – i thought i’d post some statistica charts that may be of interest
The Johns Hopkins University looked into the number deaths per 100,000 of the population in the top-10 countries worst affected by COVID-19. Belgium had over 57,000 cases on May 25 but it had the highest number of deaths per 100,000 of its inhabitants at 81.53. By comparison, badly-hit Spain and Italy had 57.43 and 55.64 deaths per 100,000 people respectively. The U.S. has surpassed 1.5 million cases and its deaths per 100,000 inhabitants stood at 30.02 on May 25.
It is important to keep in mind that countries measure these statistics differently. For example, the UK only includes deaths where people tested positive for COVID-19 while Belgium also includes suspected cases which has contributed to its higher total. A more recent overview, including other countries, is freely accessible here.
