UK has highest COVID-19 death rate in the world

The United Kingdom currently tops the global list of highest deaths per 100,000 residents, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University (JHU), CNN says.

The country reported its highest-ever single-day death toll on Wednesday with 1,820 daily new deaths reported and has been averaging about 1,240 daily deaths over the last seven days.

Country-by-country comparisons are imperfect, given that they rely on data from each nation.

As CNN says, the UK's recorded death toll, from a population of 66 million, far outweighs the record tolls in other major countries, including the US, on a per capita basis.

So far, the United Kingdom has tallied 96,166 total deaths since the pandemic began.

Countries with the highest deaths per capita are as follows:

United Kingdom: 142.53

Czech Republic: 140.91

Italy: 139.34

United States: 125.35

Spain: 117.80
