United States remains in the top 4

Romania comes in second with a relative death toll of 1 in 290. Then we see the US and Brazil, which also lead the list in absolute numbers, with 1 person dying from the virus for every 319 citizens.

What are the Covid-19 numbers in Canada?

We haven't seen Canada in the list of highest death rates from Covid-19. How does it compare to the other countries?

Canadian population: 38.4 million

Deaths: 41,756

Infections: 3.98 million

This would mean that approximately 1 person for every 919 Canadians has died from Covid-19.
