The United States is currently leading the world when it comes to the total number of dead and the infected during the pandemic.

The USA has 270 K plus deaths to date.


Brazil is the second-biggest country that has a worldwide death toll of 144K. Brazil is led by a president who has repeatedly ignored the threat of coronavirus, and this has led in the surge of deaths all through July and August. About a month ago, the death toll has begun to drop.


The trajectory has been terrible in India, and it has the third-highest death toll. Since May, the government has lifted the strict lockdown, and the death toll has increased.
