Spread of the corona virus in GreenlandBy March 28th, 2022, 11010 infected persons and 20 deaths have been reported in the country. The first confirmed infections were reported in March 2020, which is the date of the official notification. An additional 10-14 days are calculated for noticing one's own infection, the doctor's appointment, the laboratory test and, above all, the period from the infection until the first symptoms appear.
The total of 11,010 infected people represent 19.53% of the country's total population.
The first graph shows the number of reported infections per calendar week. The second graph below the number of deaths.
Mortality rate of infected personsFrom the previously infected and deceased people, in Greenland results in a mortality rate of 0.18%. It should be borne in mind that death occurs an average of 19 days after the first symptoms appear. The time of the actual infection is therefore followed by several days until a person affected has a medical test carried out and the results are available.
Due to the current corona pandemic, we update the worldwide case numbers weekly. A list of all infected and dead people by country can be found on our Corona virus topic page.
