Sri Lanka triples corona death rate in the world

The daily number of global covid deaths is as low as 1.4 percent compared to the daily global covid infections.

But in Sri Lanka that figure as high as 5 percent is a good indication of the severity of the epidemic.

On August 11 and 12, covid deaths were as high as 5 percent compared to those infected.

According to the August 6 report, the death toll on that day was 3.5 percent. This shows a gradual increase of 3.3, 3.7, 3.9 and 4.2 respectively.

In the last 10 days alone, 1,130 covid deaths have been reported in Sri Lanka. It is a serious condition that accounts for one-fifth of all covid deaths.
