Although Bosnia and Herzegovina is not at the top of the regional scale in terms of infected, it is definitely in the top when it comes to the death rate from COVID-19.
The European Center for Infectious Diseases (ECDC) regularly monitors and records the numbers of both newly infected and deaths, as well as the numbers of tests, as well as recovered. Based on their data, charts have been made that clearly show that Bosnia and Herzegovina ranks first in terms of the cumulative number of confirmed deaths in the past seven days, and is obtained by calculating each day for the previous seven backwards.
According to these data, the first place went to our country in relation to the countries of the former Yugoslavia, with 197 deaths in the last seven days, ending on November 5. Croatia is in second place with 161 deaths, followed by Slovenia, Northern Macedonia…
On the other hand, the mortality rate calculated in the last seven days per million inhabitants in BiH is 8.58. Thus, our country is in second place, and in front of us is only Montenegro with 10.1 deaths per same number of inhabitants, while Serbia has the lowest number – 0.99.
By comparison, one of the most powerful countries in the world, Germany, has 1.12 deaths per million inhabitants. Thus, it is far below BiH on the chart. For Austria, the figure is slightly higher, 2.60 per million people. This shows that BiH is one of the countries with the highest mortality rate from coronavirus at the European level, Avaz reports.
