The total of 44 infected people represent 0.015% of the country's total population.

* The number of people suffering from diabetes refers only to inhabitants aged between 20 and 79 years.
With about 570 physicians in New Caledonia, there are about 1.98 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.
Through medical care, the mortality of major known diseases can be reduced to an above-average extent. For example, only about 0 percent of all people who suffer from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases or chylomicron retention disease (CRD) currently die.
Supply with drinking water
About 97 percent of the population has access to an immediately available, running drinking water supply. At least via springs and wells at a distance of no more than 30 minutes or supplied water, 99% of the population is supplied with largely clean drinking water. The population is thus better served than average. In a global comparison, only about 71% of the population has direct access to tested and always available drinking water. Within the European Union, this share is 97%. Only in a few countries does the proportion fall below 10%.
