COVID-19 pandemic death rates by country

This article contains the case fatality rate (the number of dead among the number of diagnosed cases only), as well as death rates per 100,000 population by country from the pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) as reported by Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center.[1]

As of 30 November 2020, Yemen has the highest case fatality rate at 28.3%, while Singapore has the lowest at 0.05%.[1] Note that case fatality rates reported below may not reflect the underlying fatality rate due to wide regional and temporal differences in policies around testing and reporting of deaths.

This table is for entire populations, and does not reflect the differences in mortality rates relative to different age groups. For example, in the United States the case fatality rate is 0.003%, 0.02%; 0.5% and 5.4% for the age groups 0–19, 20–49, 50–69, and 70 or over, respectively.[2][3]
