We have been tracking the Covid-19 coronavirus stats using Worldometer since the beginning of the pandemic.
Not many people died in most countries from Covid-19
Of the 227 countries they have been tracking since the beginning of the pandemic, 9 have recorded zero deaths, 38 have recorded less than 100 deaths, 62 have recorded less than 200 deaths, 80 have recorded less than 500 deaths, and 100 have recorded less than 1000 deaths each.
In fact, 206 countries from the 227 reported less than 50,000 deaths.
Now consider that during the 2018 flu season, the Office for National Statistics reported just over 50,000 deaths in England and Wales.
In fact, during this flu outbreak, Public Health England (PHE) declared that “while flu was rendering the largest number of people seriously unwell since the winter of 2010/11, it was still not an epidemic.”
Although we need to take the total size and population into account, we can at least acknowledge that England and Wales – even combined – are pretty small with a relatively small population compared to most countries in Africa, for example.
Worldometer does record total deaths for every country per 1 million of the population if you do want to delve.
