On Thursday, India became the third after the US and Brazil to report over 4 lakh Covid death. Mexico is the only other country to have registered more than 2 lakh deaths.

There are ten more countries where more than one lakh people have surrendered to death due to Covid related complications. The US is at the top with 6 lakh registered deaths, followed by Brazil with 5.2 lakh and then India with 4.0 lakh. The list continues with Mexico 2.3 lakh and Peru with 1.9 lakh deaths. The other countries with five figure death tolls are Russia, the UK, Italy, France, and Colombia.

Among these countries, India’s death per million population is the lowest at 287. Whereas, in Russia it is 916 and between 1000-2000 for France, Mexico, the US, and UK. The ratio is highest for Peru which records 5,765 deaths for every million of its population.

India’s case fatality rate, i.e., death per 100 infections is 1.3, which is again lowest among these countries. When compared to other large Asian countries and its neighborhood, India’s death per million ratio is among the highest.

The ratio is lower than India for 66 of these countries.
