If the accounts are made per million inhabitants, the territory also appears in a positive place
Of the 215 countries or territories infected with the new coronavirus, Macau – which ranks 195th in the overall ranking – has already carried out more than 4,000 tests and had, so far, 46 cases of Covid-19 infection. All healed. The vast majority of cases were imported. These values, and the way the local authorities have fought the scourge, have already led Macau to be highlighted as an example in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
With around 650 thousand inhabitants, Macau also ends up being well classified in what per cases per million inhabitants. The Special Administrative Region of China ranks 22nd.
In this ranking, China is also curious – which has already tested 90 million people – to appear with an interesting result, since the country has almost 1.5 billion inhabitants, which greatly reduces the number of cases per million inhabitants. If we count the total number of cases, the Middle Kingdom is the 31st country with the most cases (almost 85 thousand).
Who is also presenting with encouraging results is Timor-Leste. In the lusophony spectrum, alongside Macau, it is the most successful territory in the fight against SARS-CoV-2, although the country of 1.3 million inhabitants has been testing the population very little (4238 tests), the which may add some doubts to the final outcome of cases in the Pacific country.
Angola also shows apparently positive results when the cases are counted by millions of inhabitants, occupying the 17th position ahead of China and Macau, but the African country only tested 64,000 people out of its almost 33 million inhabitants.
Brazil is the most affected Portuguese-speaking country with more than three million cases. Portugal appears with almost 53 thousand cases in a population of just over 10 million. Mozambique has 2411 cases registered. Cape Verde already has 2883 infections. Guinea-Bissau has 2052 infected and, finally, São Tomé and Princípe appears with 878 declared cases. The data are provided by the World Health Organization.
The territory with the fewest cases in the world (3) is Anguilla, a British overseas island in the Eastern Caribbean. The Marshall Islands, Solomon Islands, Kiribati, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu are the territories in the world where SARS-CoV-2 has not yet reached.
