Coronavirus Deaths as Percent of Population Tracker, By Country

This table tracks coronavirus deaths as a percent of the population for each country.

(This is a ratio of coronavirus deaths to the total population for each country, then multiplied by 100 to convert to percentage.)

Countries are listed in order by those with the highest percentage of the population that died of coronavirus COVID-19.

(To see the rate of increase for global COVID-19 deaths, see this, or rate of increase for global COVID-19 cases, see this. Or see what percent of the population has been confirmed with coronavirus, or more coronavirus statistics here.)

Below the bar chart, you will find the table of numbers in case you prefer to see the actual data. Jump down there. Or jump down to see the source of this data.

Note: Data as of November 29, 2020.

      And that is the real question.
      I don’t think anyone has ever thought of me as a conspiracy theorist, but one can’t help but wonder about Covid19.

      So less than 1 percent of people ( way less ) have had the virus and over a million have died so far. If its allowed to go fee without any restrictions .. many millions will die. Work it out for yourself. Work out the capacity of the healthcare system in each country .. how long would they last if if was allowed to spread?

          I know, pretty outrageous. How people are falling for this so easily is just stunning. Better wake up before total control is achieved.

          avatar
          • September 12th, 2020 at 9:03 am

            Exactly what part are people falling for? The death rate for COVID vs the flu is about 50 times greater. The total number of cases is suppressed because of the precautions that virtually every country has taken. I don’t really understand the conspiracy point of view.

            avatar
          • September 12th, 2020 at 2:10 pm

            Ron: all of it. The numbers are padded, the pcr test should not be used for diagnosing patients (look up Dr. Kary Mullis, the inventor, who stated unequivocally that it was never to used that way), it is causing a high % of false positives, we’ve never tested for flu or any other illness like this before, never quarantined the healthy, the “experts” have been repeatedly caught talking out of both sides of their mouths and moving goal posts (remember 2 wks to flatten the curve?), the massive damage from the shutdown has caused vastly more destruction and death than this or any virus…none of this so far has passed the sniff test. Not sure where you’re getting the “50 times greater” death rate. Italy, for ex, has been going through their cv deaths and removing many of them, finding that they actually died of their co morbidities/age. The conspiracy is about control.

            Oh the guy that was using LSD. And said that global warming was all a conspiracy. Every country in the world must be in on this conspiracy. The 50 to 100 times greater is from a paper by 2 epidemiologists. It’s unnecessary to cite because you most likely would not believe it.
            Ok. Thank you. I have not had a conversation with a conspiracy theorist before and now I have.

            Ron: so what? You are attacking and dismissing someone because they used lsd? There is actual medical usage for lsd. The idea of global warming has numerous detractors, it could very well be a conspiracy (yeah, governments do that kind of thing all the time, pay attention). The pcr is resulting in a high number of false positives, that is indisputable. Gosh, that tired trope “conspiracy therorist”…yawn. When ya got nothing, attack and dismiss.

    Appreciate you putting in the time to compile these numbers. Still curious about errors due to how deaths are or are not contributed to COVID.

    avatar
  3. October 27th, 2020 at 10:28 am

    You are a numbers person too.
    – Right, only about 0.07% have died from COVIS.
    – Average US life expectancy is about 79
    – About 75% of deaths are over age 65 (see CDC site https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid_weekly/index.htm
    – Contributing factors are some amount, seems like little info on PURE COVID deaths
    – FYI, about 1,600,000 people (babies) die annually from ABORTION, which means it is 4 to 5 times as fatal as COVIS. It is also an ELECTIVE DEATH in most cases
