In South Asia, Pakistan has the highest number of coronaviruses and deaths per million | Instant News

Of the three largest countries in South Asia, Pakistan has the highest COVID-19 cases and deaths per million people, according to world statistics.

In terms of the number of confirmed cases compared to its population, Pakistan ranks number one, followed by Bangladesh and India, according to Our World in Data, a collaborative effort between researchers at the University of Oxford and the nonprofit Global Change Data Lab.

As per the graph, on May 20 Pakistan had 207 cases per million in the country. Bangladesh has 152 and India has 77 positive tests per million.

In terms of deaths per million, Pakistan once again led with 0.21 deaths per million on May 20, followed by Bangladesh 0.13 and India 0.10.

However, the dashboard noted that the number of confirmed cases was lower than the total number of cases. The main reason for this is that testing is limited in some countries.

Earlier this month, Pakistan began to loosen three weeks of easing to allow several industries and economic sectors to open, following strict protocols.
