Kuwait City, Oct 25: The website “The National” reported that the death rates for people infected with the Coronavirus in Kuwait are among the lowest in the world, due to the high percentage of middle-aged people in Kuwait, as in the Gulf countries in general. Reported by Al-Rai.
The site stated that these results were reached by a study conducted by researchers at the University of Jordan and the St. Mary’s Medical Group in the American state of Indiana on the number of deaths from the Coronavirus in the world until May of last year, where they compared the data for the Gulf countries and the data of 33 European countries.
The researchers found that mortality rates were 5-10 times higher in Europe than in the GCC countries.
In their report, they indicated that as of May 12 last year, the death rate in Kuwait was 0.69 percent, compared to 1.06 percent in the UAE, 0.62 in Saudi Arabia, 0.45 in Oman, 0.15 in Bahrain, and 0.06 percent in Qatar.
