Almost 90 million people in the world have so far been diagnosed with the coronavirus, and the number of corona-related deaths is approaching 2 million.

Measured by the number of deaths per inhabitant, Belgium is still at the top with 172 deaths per 100,000 inhabitants, Worldometer’s overview shows.

Four out of the top twelve countries on the list are in the Balkans. 

Slovenia has 142 deaths per 100,000 inhabitants, Bosnia 131, Northern Macedonia 124, and Montenegro 114.

That is far higher than the global average, which is 25.

Sweden is in a special position in the Nordic region with 93 corona deaths per 100,000 inhabitants, Denmark has 26, Finland 11, and Norway and Iceland have 9.
