The U.S. has seen its caseload rise at the fastest rate in recent weeks.

The novel coronavirus, which causes a potentially deadly respiratory illness called COVID-19, has affected the vast majority of countries, and responses have varied greatly, depending on national income, health care system and other factors.

As a result, the death toll in relation to the overall caseload has varied greatly from country to country.

The U.S., Brazil and UK rank the highest in terms of mortality rate with 128,437, 57,658, and 43,550 respectively.

In Africa, South Africa, Egypt and Nigeria have recorded the highest number of cases at 138,134, 65,188, and 24,567 respectively.

Mortality rate in Africa has been high with a total of 9,698 COVID-19 deaths recorded in 57 countries.
