Notes to remember

It is very sad that things are going so badly in India with the Covid-19 pandemic, but if we look at the figures for high mortality on May 10, 2021 related to Covid-19, then the 10 deadliest countries (deaths per million) are Hungary, Czechia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, San Marino, Montenegro, Bulgaria, North Macedonia, Slovakia, Belgium and Slovenia.
