Covid-19 deaths per 100k population

Covid-19 deaths per 100k population in 15 countries

Comparing Covid-19 deaths on a per capita (population) basis is the fairest way of comparing the impact of the virus between countries.  It means that larger countries are not discriminated and that smaller countries are not overlooked in the analysis.  The chart shows the cumulative per capita covid-19 mortality from the twelve countries with the highest rates.  To avoid the impact of very small datasets, countries with a population of less than 4 million were excluded from the analysis.  Thus, the USA which has the highest number of deaths from coronavirus and the highest cases of infection is ninth highest by this measure and Belgium with under 10,000 deaths has the highest rate of deaths when calculated per 100,000 population.
