A new study has found that the U.S. has the highest rate of deaths from COVID-19 among the 28 developed nations in the world.
The study, released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), examined death rates in the 14 countries where COVID has been found.
The researchers found that death rates among the countries that have had the most cases of the disease have been highest.
That includes the U to the U’s three states, Utah, Idaho and Wyoming, all with COVID cases.
The United Kingdom and Canada also had the highest death rates.
But, the authors note, there are some exceptions.
Alaska, the first state in the country to experience the coronavirus pandemic, had the lowest rate of COVID deaths among the 14 nations examined, at 4.6 deaths per 100,000 people.
That was significantly lower than all of the other U.K. states, where death rates have ranged from 6.6 to 9.1 deaths per 1,000 residents.
The most deadly state in terms of COV-19 cases per capita is Vermont, where the death rate was 6.1, followed by Hawaii, California and New York.
The U.N. and other health agencies say the United States has the most deaths of any country with a COVID outbreak.
The data was compiled by the World Health Organization and the CDC.
The findings are being released in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which was signed in 1948.
The report, published in the Lancet medical journal, found that states that have seen a high number of cases of COVA-19 and are currently experiencing an outbreak have a higher death rate.
“It is important to note that COVID is a complex disease, which can affect the immune system, respiratory system, cardiovascular system and other tissues,” the researchers wrote.
“The findings also suggest that the risk of COVD remains high in all countries that are currently at risk.”
