Peru is already the country in the world with the highest death rate from the new coronavirus after Belgium corrected its death toll in the past few hours, while the Ministry of Health has already reported 28,124 deaths, although another 10,000 are to be lamented.
In its latest tally, the Ministry of Health reported 123 new deaths from the coronavirus and 5,996 more positive ones this Wednesday. As a result, there have been 28,124 deaths and 613,378 accumulated cases since the pandemic began.
The Belgian government has removed 121 deaths from their balance because they are ultimately unrelated to COVID-19. The total stands at 9,878, which translates to 85.5 deaths per 100,000 for a population of just over 11.5 million. While the 28,124 deaths in Peru in the Andean country of 36 million people were 85.8 percent of the casualties per 100,000 people.
Authorities added that 13,051 patients are still in the hospital, 1,512 of whom require mechanical ventilation. In contrast, 421,877 people have already received a medical discharge.
