According to data from Johns Hopkins University in the United States, the United States has the second-highest mortality rate. It is 1.55. Accordingly, the gap between second place and first place as a percentage is 296 per cent. According to the data, Britain has the third-highest number of deaths per million people. That’s 1.3 deaths per million people. France, Germany and Canada are the other countries with the highest population.
Medical experts focusing on Covid are of the opinion that this situation has developed with the rapid spread of the Delta variant in all these countries. Scientists at Johns Hopkins University estimate that in every country these statistics are based on official reports from the governments of those countries, but in practice, more deaths occur in a day.
