Post-COVID Analysis

In-Depth Examination Of The COVID-19 Pandemic Global Impact


The “Post-COVID Analysis” teaser is the first iteration of an in-depth examination of the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. In July 2021, Deep Knowledge Analytics (DKA) published a COVID-19 Regional Safety Assessment for 250 countries. The new iteration provides more information and insights about the current situation of the pandemic. The comprehensive country analysis will be published in the near future; this will provide more detailed information about how different countries are coping with the situation.


This analytical case study uses data from various credible sources to compare the number of deaths caused by COVID-19 across different countries and presents a thorough analysis of the factors that have contributed to the varying mortality rates. The teaser includes an overview of the COVID-19 status of Israel.

Countries With The Largest Number of COVID-19 Cases And Deaths

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected countries around the world in different ways, with some experiencing a higher morbidity and mortality rate than others. The reasons behind the high number of cases in the countries listed below are likely to be complex and multifaceted. Possible factors include small population size and limited testing, which could lead to a higher number of undetected cases. The high population density of several of these countries may also be a contributing factor. As of January 2023, there have been 672.7 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 worldwide, a global average of 86,300 cases per million people.

Peru has the largest number of deaths per 1 million population, with 6,490. This is followed by Bulgaria (5,575), Hungary (5,062), Bosnia and Herzegovina (5,000) and North Macedonia (4,628). The average number of deaths per 1 million population worldwide is 865, making the numbers for “leading” countries on the list even more striking.
