The United States has taken over Italy as the country with the most corona virus deaths in Europe when the total rose to 29,427 on Tuesday.
The latest government daily figures make the US the worst-hit country in terms of deaths, behind the U.S., which has reported more than 70,000 deaths. The trend was confirmed at data collected by Johns Hopkins University.
Because Italy has a smaller population and the number of deaths is 29,315, Italy still has higher mortality rate per person than English. Britain has also recently been included to include deaths in “all arrangements,” which are included in the community, in its figures.
US Secretary of State Dominic Raab warned against international comparisons that they could not be made “reliable,” citing various methods of calculation and data collection, adding that the UK Office for National Statistics (ONS) was “a world leader.”
“I don’t think we will get a real verdict on how countries have done until the pandemic ends, and especially until we have obtained comprehensive international data on all causes of death,” he said at the Downing Street daily briefing.
Deputy chief scientific adviser Angela McLean said: “Deaths in Britain are higher than we expected, I think that’s all I can say.”
Earlier on Tuesday the ONS released figures showing that the total death rate in Britain had now exceeded 32,000. It said 29,648 people died from the virus in England and Wales until April 24 – deaths in Scotland and Northern Ireland topped 32,000.
Nick Stripe, head of health analysis at ONS, said: “International comparisons are very difficult and will be for some time to come. UK death registration data is the fastest, most frequent, and deepest than any other statistical agency. “
