COVID-19 Deaths Per 100,000 Inhabitants: A Comparison By Country

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. The United Kingdom had over 300,000 confirmed cases as of August 10, according to the Johns Hopkins University, along with 70.16 deaths per 100,000 of its inhabitants. Peru and Chile had the second and third highest total per 100,000 of the population with 64.55 and 53.45 respectively while the U.S. followed with 49.65. 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.
