According to the latest data, as many as 6,002,403 people have been infected. Of those, 366,674 (or 6.11%) died. The cases have doubled approximately for a month, as the threshold of three million was passed on April 27.

The United States sits at the top, accounting for a third of all cases. According to the New York Times’ estimates, the country has registered 1,767,600 cases, with the 5.84% death tally (or 103,300 fatalities). Brazil comes in second with 469,510 cases and 27,944 fatalities (or 5.59%). Russia is in third place (396,575 cases and 4,555 deaths, or 1,15%).

Nevertheless, the situation differs considerably concerning the number of coronavirus cases per 100,000 of population. Qatar and San Marino are ranked first, as nearly 2% of population have been infected. They are followed by small nations with a relatively low number of cases, like the Vatican (12 cases) and Andorra (764 cases). The US is ranked 8th, Russia 28th, and Brazil 35th.
