Public health and Covid-19 in San Marino

Healthcare in San Marino

Healthcare in San Marino is one of the most effective worldwide.

Probably the most important indicator that can be used to summarize the efficiency of all measures is general life expectancy. In other words, the theoretical age that a newborn child could potentially reach today. At the moment this age in San Marino is 84.1 years for men and 86.8 years for women. For comparison: worldwide life expectancy is about 12.6 years lower (men: 70.6 / women: 75.1 years).

A total of 3,050.92 USD per inhabitant is spent annually on health measures at state expense. This corresponds to approximately 6.4% of the gross domestic product. Internationally, this amount averages 1,121.80 USD (~ 9.8% of the respective GDP).

Distribution of the corona virus

Spread of the corona virus in San Marino

18th calendar week (05/02/2022 to 05/08/2022): 59.8 new infections per day per 100,000 inhabitants
By May 9th, 2022, 15339 infected persons and 109 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 15,339 infected people represent 45.20% of the country's total population. The number of new infections during the 18th calendar week was 142 , representing 59.8 cases per 100,000 inhabitants per day.


The first graph shows the number of reported infections per calendar week. The second graph below the number of deaths.

Mortality rate of infected persons

From the previously infected and deceased people, in San Marino results in a mortality rate of 0.7%. 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.

Medical supplies

Public health and Covid-19 in San MarinoThe medical care provided by doctors and hospitals in San Marino is above average, but is not as good as the average within the EU. The country provides 3.8 hospital beds per 1000 inhabitants. The global mean here is 2.9 beds. Within the EU, 4.6 beds are available for every 1,000 residents.

With about 209 physicians in San Marino, there are about 6.15 doctors per 1000 inhabitants. Here again the comparison: worldwide this standard is 1.50 physicians per 1000 inhabitants and in the EU even 3.57.



Supply with drinking water

The drinking water supply in San Marino is 100% tapped for all inhabitants. Only very few countries achieve this standard, where every inhabitant has a water connection in the immediate vicinity with tested drinking water. In a global comparison, only about 74% of the population has direct access to tested and always available drinking water. Within the European Union, this share is 98%. Only in a few countries does the proportion fall below 10%.
