Abstract

Covid-19 has given a halt to all the activities in the world. Europe was most affected followed by the United States of America. It has taken more than 200,000 lives till now. In this study, we have assessed the severity of Covid-19 by analyzing the mortality rate in Covid-19 and other diseases to see the severity of Covid-19 and other chronic diseases. The Covid-19 data and “death rate” data caused by other diseases were downloaded from the world health organization (WHO) website. A normalized period based method was used to see the mortality rate of Covid-19 in comparison to other diseases. The deaths occurred by cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and respiratory diseases were more in number than the Covid-19 caused deaths in the 45 days period where most of the Covid-19 deaths had taken place. The severity of Covid-19 in the USA was moderate. The severity of Covid-19 in Asian countries was found to be at a low. Europe showed the highest diversity in the mortality rate of Covid-19. Cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and non-communicable diseases were still more lethal and caused more deaths than Covid-19.
