The United States still stands as the country with the highest death toll at 98,220 to date. Countries following at a distant second and third are the United Kingdom and Italy, with 36,914 and 32,877 deaths, respectively.
Expanding the dataset we analyzed in question 1, each country was populated into a geographic world map. The largest dot, the United States, indicates the highest death toll at 98,220. The following countries are indicated with the translucent, medium-sized dots, with the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Spain and Brazil.
