A Recent Study on the Global Epidemiology of the COVID-19 Pandemic: A Population-level Observation till the End of 2020

A new study looked at epidemiological data from 17 nations during the first 90 days of the coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) lockdown in Wuhan, China. However, in order to take preventative steps, it is necessary to grasp the current world scenario. The goal of this research is to look at the global epidemiology of the COVID-19 pandemic from 212 nations through 2020. We used data from worldometers.info until December 31, 2020 to conduct this population-level observational analysis. Case rates, active cases, recovery rates, severe cases, death, and case fatality were among the epidemiological parameters examined. Despite a global recovery rate of 70.78%, mortality and case fatality rates are 0.02 percent and 2.18 percent, respectively. Andorra (1041%) has a high prevalence of instances, while Martinique (9769%), France (9012%), and Belgium (9009%) have a high incidence of active cases. Despite the large number of patients in Guinea-Bissau (50 percent), Antiqua and Barbuda (16.67 percent), and Saudi Arabia (13.81 percent), the recovery rate is approximately 90%. Both severe cases (24.21% ) and case fatality rates (29.06%) are high in Yemen; nevertheless, the recovery rate is somewhat over the national average of 66.41%. The recovery rates in Macao, Marshal Island, New Caledonia, and Singapore are all 100%. Worldwide, the recovery rate is high, and the death rate is low. In Yemen, however, the condition is extremely severe. For the international scientific community, these findings allow constant surveillance of the COVID-19 pandemic.
