Covid-19: the pandemic has already killed more than 65,000 people
© Provided by La Tribune At least 233,300 cases are now considered to be cured. The pandemic of the new coronavirus has killed at least 65,272 people worldwide since its appearance in December in China, according to a report established by AFP from official sources Sunday at 11:00 GMT. More than 1,206,480 cases of infection have been officially diagnosed in 190 countries and territories since the start of the epidemic.
The data concerning the mortality linked to Covid-19 in each country are most often delivered in a raw manner. Consequently, the comparison between States is marred by several biases. Starting with the criteria allowing to link - or not - such and such a death to the new coronavirus.
Indeed, until recently, France only communicated on deaths occurring in hospitals. In recent days, a second assessment, that of deaths "related" to the virus in Ehpad, has also been made public. Still nothing, however, concerning deaths that take place at home, and which constitute the third source of data on the subject.
In other countries, such as, . The daily report includes hospital deaths and certain deaths in retirement homes, but not exhaustively either.
Trudeau warns COVID-19 restrictions the new normal
Trudeau warns COVID-19 restrictions the new normal"Modelling shows that COVID-19 arrived in Canada later than other countries. We're in the earlier stage of outbreak," he said.
Another bias, as you point out, lies in the demographic differences between countries. With the risk of misunderstanding the differences in situation between a highly populated State and another much smaller.
Thus, the balance sheet of the main affected States (on April 8, 2020), without taking into account this demographic characteristic, gives the following result:
Where we note that the countries most affected, in absolute value, are Italy (17,669 dead), Spain (15,238 dead), the United States (13,007 dead), France (10,869 died with Ephad), the United Kingdom (7,097 dead), Iran (3,993 dead), the Netherlands (2248 dead), Belgium (2240 dead) and Germany (2096 dead).
To resolve this pitfall linked to demographic differences, the number of deaths should be reduced to the same population group. By taking for example the number of deaths per 100,000 or one million inhabitants.
Consequently, by dividing the number of deaths per million inhabitants, we obtain the following classification:
This time, Spain appears as the most affected country, followed by Italy, Belgium, France (with Ehpad), the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Iran, the United States and Germany.
