A long time ago, i made this thread:https://www.warzone.com/Forum/413303-maga-usa-beating-war-causalities-corona
Instead of bashing on one country, let us rate all the countrys performances with this specific problem.
Countries with higher population ages and worse medical systems tend to have more deaths per capita.
With the exeption of the USA, really small states (often islands) tend to lead in per capita cases on each continent.
was the origin place of the virus. Despite this and being by far the most populated place on Earth, in general Asians tend to fare rather well. Noteworthy seems to be the high cases in the island Persian Gulf emirates and the Caucasus. Armenia and the countries sourrounding it (primarily Georgia and Iran) have a clear lead in deaths compared to other Asian countries. On the opposite site of the spectrum, continental Southeast Asia (Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia) have managed to get really low per capita cases despite being next to China. Logically, they also have almost zero deaths. The best medical care seems to be situated in Singapore, which has far fewer deaths compared to its cases. The worst medical care seems to be situated in Iran, where a far higher percentage of people die compared to the number of cases.Oceania
has the advantage of being far away from most of humanity and therefore has it more easy to deal with the pandemic. Not surprisingly, the region fares best out of all on earth. Noteworthy is here the horrible performance of French Polynesia, which has comparable case numbers to the Caucasus. They also lead in deaths, thou not even half as bad as the top 3 in Asia.Africa
despite it being seen by others as backwards and narrowmined has dealt with the pandemic really well. The worst contenders with per capita cases are ironically western offshorts with rather high european minded populations (French islands of Mayotte and Réunion, Cabo Verde and South Africa). Generally speeking, North Africa has it worse that those south of the Sahara desert. Still, no country reaches even half the per capita cases of French Polynesia. Deaths are also worst in the leading case countries. The East Africa coast performes the best with the 60 million inhabitants Tanzania only having 509 cases and 21 deaths. In Egypt the case to death ratio is by far the worst, while Botwana and Guinea perform the best here. It would be easy to assume this being the case because of their population pyramids, by the case of Egypt tells this is not the primarily factor at play here.Europe
has some of the worst per capita case performers. The top 4 being the micro- and minor states of Andorra, Luxembourg, Montenegro and San Marino. The only pattern to see with the european cases is that generally, the Nordics (with the notable exeption of Sweden) fare best, even thou they still fail in comparision to for example Indochina which is also far more densely populated. From the bigger countries, Czechia and Belgium lead in cases, but the next contenders are not far behind and all European states have a rather high case percentage. Notable is the by far highest lead in per capita deaths of Belgium, who even tops San Marino and the 33% less deadly Italy in 3rd place. With the exeption of Monaco, the Nordics also have the fewest deaths. In the comparision of survivability, the NHS of the UK compares horrible to other european countries. The lethality of the corona virus is here a 3,47% compared to Belgiums 2,95%. The best performer in this field is Monaco with a deceased rate of just 0,45%. Of course this can easely be explained by the fact that Monaco is full of rich tax avoiders who have private healthcare.South America
is following the sad pattern by now, the French oversea territory of Guiana leads here as well, followed by Argentina and Brazil. Still, the South America top 3 would be European average. Uruguay and Venezuela have the fewest per capita cases, they outperform the best european countries by 100%, but still fall short compared to all other continents top contenders. The uncontested lead in per capta deaths has Peru with more deaths per capita than Italy. Generally speaking, countries south of the Equator fare worse than those north of it in South America. Venezuela and Uruguay have the fewest per capita deaths as well, only toped by the totally unreachable Falkland Islands.North America
is a special case, with the USA leading in total (world record) , per capita cases (here just below Belgium) and per capita deaths. They still fare better in a comparison to Europa and are comparable to the South Americans in per capita deaths, but have douple the case number percentages. Bestby far fares the isolated Greenland. The worst lethality seems to have Mexico with a death percentage of 9,12% (world record!). Why this is the case, i have no idea. :( The least lethal infections seem to be happening in Curaçao, what has an even lower rate (0,30%) than Monaco.
