Bermuda is at the top of a global list for the number of Covid-19 cases per 100,000 residents in a table compiled by The New York Times.

The American newspaper said Bermuda averaged 109 new cases every day from last Monday to yesterday – a rate of 171 per 100,000 people.

Grenada placed second with 163 cases and the Seychelles was third with 101.

Serbia was in fourth place, Dominica took fifth place and Mongolia was in sixth place.

But Bermuda, with two fatalities listed, had the third lowest average daily death rate of the top ten jurisdictions.

The island also had the second highest vaccination rate of the top ten at 67 per cent.

The list is made up of 217 countries, nations, territories, dependencies, principalities and states.

Bermuda placed second for deaths per 100,000 at 3.13 among the 217 places listed.

Bermuda was at the top of the same chart for cases per 100,000 people from September 6 to September 12.

The Royal Gazette has created a new page with a range of statistical information on the coronavirus.
