Portugal, New Zealand and Australia are currently leading the per capita rates of fatalities which poses an interesting question – how are these countries addressing this?
Thankfully it looks as though Portugal is bending the curve on cases and fatalities.
The last 6 months have each seen over 500 deaths per month in Portugal – a figure that was not reached in April to November 2021. The last 6 months account for 20% of all COVID fatalities in that country.
Australia and New Zealand were very successful in combating covid in the early waves. However as can be seen from below the variants of occurring since Dec 2021 have been the most severe for these countries.
The curve is even more disturbing for Australia. 75% of all COVID deaths in Australia have occurred in the last 6 months.
And even more so in New Zealand – 96% of all fatalities have been in the last 6 months
