Abstract— The objective of this study is to make a comparison between five (5) most affected countries (USA, Brazil, U.K.,
Italy and India) of the world by Covid-19. The study is based on the secondary data. For conducting this study published
data in online portal www.worldometers.info has been used. 4 months i.e. August 2020 to November 2020 has been chosen
to carry out this study. For data analysis and interpretation Microsoft excel software (version 2019) has been used. Basic
arithmetic technique and ratio analysis has been used in this study for data interpretation purpose. For measuring cyclical
fluctuations in Covid-19 cases and its corresponding death cases, visual representation has been incorporated as bar diagram.
Relevant images have been sourced from authentic sources and used in this study for satisfying the research objective. Finally
the study has revealed that during the period of August 2020 to November 2020 Brazil is the most affected country and
United States of America is the least affected country based on the mortality rate among the five countries taken as sample
for this study.
Keywords— Covid 19, Cyclical fluctuations, Mortality.
I. INTRODUCTION
COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most
recently discovered corona virus. This new virus and disease
were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China,
in December 2019. COVID-19 is now a pandemic affecting
many countries globally. CoVs are positive-RNA viruses
with a crown like appearance under an electron microscope
(coronam) is the spike glycoprotients on the envelope. The
new corona virus is a respiratory virus which spreads
primarily through droplets generated when an infected
person coughs or sneezes or through droplets of saliva or
discharge from the nose (Nucleonix, 2020; Desai,R., 2020).

Corona virus, have enveloped virions (virus particle) that
measure approximately 120nm(1nm=10^-9 metre) in
diameter. Club-shaped glycoprotient spikes in the envelope
give the viruses a crownlike, or coronal, appearance. The
nucleocapsid, made up of a protein shell known as a capsid
and containing the viral nucleic acids, is helical or tubular.
The Corona virus genome consists of a single strand of
positive-sense RNA (Ribonucleic Acid) (Britannica, 2020).

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which may cause
illness in animals or humans. In humans, several
coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections
ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such

as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe
Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently
discovered coronavirus causes coronavirus disease COVID-
19 (Cohuna District Hospital, 2020).

1.1 Origin of the disease
The coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) is a highly
transmittable and pathogenic viral infection caused by
severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-
CoV-2), which emerged in Wuhan, China and spread
around the world. Genomic analysis revealed that SARS-
CoV-2 is phylogenetically related to severe acute
respiratory syndrome-like (SARS-like) bat viruses,
therefore bats could be the possible primary reservoir
(Shereen, M., Khan, S, & Kazmi, A. et al. ,2020).

1.2 Symptoms of Covid-19
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, dry
cough, and tiredness. Other symptoms that are less common
and may affect some patients include aches and pains, nasal
congestion, headache, conjunctivitis, sore throat, diarrhoea,
loss of taste or smell or a rash on skin or discoloration of
fingers or toes. These symptoms are usually mild and begin
gradually. Some people become infected but only have very
mild symptoms. Most people (about 80%) recover from the
disease without needing hospital treatment. Around 1 out of
every 5 people who gets COVID-19 becomes seriously ill
and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those
with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure,
heart and lung problems, diabetes, or cancer, are at higher
risk of developing serious illness (Agencia TIC TIMOR I.P.,
2020). However, anyone can catch COVID-19 and become
seriously ill. People of all ages who experience fever and/or
cough associated with difficulty breathing/shortness of
breath, chest pain/pressure, or loss of speech or movement
should seek medical attention immediately. If possible, it is
recommended to call the health care provider or facility first,
so the patient can be directed to the right clinic. The most
common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, dry cough, and
tiredness. Other symptoms that are less common and may

loss of taste or smell or a rash on skin or discoloration of
fingers or toes. These symptoms are usually mild and begin
gradually. Some people become infected but only have very
mild symptoms (Ministry of Health, Federal Republic of
Somalia, 2020).

1.3 How does Covid-19 spread?
International Journal of Management, Sciences, Innovation, and Technology Vol.2, Issue.2, March 2021
© 2021, IJMSIT All Rights Reserved 3
According to the guideline as prescribed by the World
Health Organization (https://www.who.int) people can
catch COVID-19 from others who have the virus.
▪ The disease spreads primarily from person to
person through small droplets from the nose or
mouth, which are expelled when a person with
COVID-19 coughs, sneezes, or speaks.
▪ These droplets are relatively heavy, do not travel
far and quickly sink to the ground. People can catch
COVID-19 if they breathe in these droplets from a
person infected with the virus.
▪ These droplets can land on objects and surfaces
around the person such as tables, doorknobs and
handrails.
▪ People can become infected by touching these
objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, nose
or mouth.
1.4 Precautionary measures & protection from Covid-19?
▪ Cleaning hands frequently and thoroughly.
▪ Avoid touching eyes, mouth and nose.
▪ Covering cough with the bend of elbow or tissue.
If a tissue is used, discard it immediately and wash
hands.
▪ Maintain a distance of at least 1 metre from others.

II. LITERATURE REVIEW AND RESEARCH GAP
To satisfy the objective of this study the endeavour has taken
to review the existing literatures. The study conducted by
Pragholapati, A. (2020) has revealed that students tend to
focus their discussions on topics very close to their
neighbourhood, such as school closing and local news. The
author also emphasized that although the positive
percentage (%) of COVID-19 Tweets was very low for both
demographics, college students proved to be significantly
more negative. The COVID-19 pandemic is associated with
highly significant levels of psychological distress that, in
many cases, would meet the threshold for clinical relevance.
Mitigating the hazardous effects of COVID-19 on mental
health is an international public health priority (Xiong, J.
et.al, 2020). The study conducted by Tee, M. L. et. al. (2020)
has revealed that during the early phase of the pandemic in
the Philippines, one-fourth of respondents reported
moderate-to-severe anxiety and one-sixth reported
moderate-to-severe depression and psychological impact.
The factors identified can be used to devise effective
psychological support strategies. The research work carried
out by Cao, W. et. al. (2020) indicated that economic effects,
and effects on daily life, as well as delays in academic
activities, were positively associated with anxiety symptoms
(P < .001). However, social support was negatively
correlated with the level of anxiety (P < .001). It is suggested
that the mental health of college students should be
monitored during epidemics.
The existing literatures suggest that there are limited studies
conducted in the area of country wise comparison based on
the Covid-19 impact on the most affected countries for the
period of August 2020 to November 2020. To plug-in the
analytical gap a serious attempt has been taken in this study
by conceptualizing the objective as follows for this research
work.
III. OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY:
The objective of this study is to make a comparison between
five (5) most affected countries (USA, Brazil, U.K., Italy
and India) of the world by Covid-19 for the period of August
2020 to November 2020.
IV. MATERIALS AND METHODS
Secondary data has been used for carrying out this research
work. Published data in online portal
www.worldometers.info has been extracted for this study.
Four (4) months i.e. August 2020 to November 2020 has
been chosen to carry out this study. For data analysis and
interpretation purpose, Microsoft excel software (version
2019) has been used. Basic arithmetic technique and ratio
analysis has been also used in this study for data
interpretation purpose. For visual representation bar
diagram has been used
V. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION
Globally, as of 4:32pm CET, 30 December 2020, there have
been 80,773,033 confirmed cases of COVID-19, including
1,783,619 deaths, reported to World Health Organization
International Journal of Management, Sciences, Innovation, and Technology Vol.2, Issue.2, March 2021

(WHO). In the following a detailed discussion has been
made with respect to the most 5 affected countries (USA,
Brazil, U.K., Italy and India) by Covid-19. The comparison
has also been shown among these 5 countries with the help
of the graphs of the no. of infected people and deaths in the
5 countries. Microsoft Excel (MS Excel 2019) software has
been used in this study for data analysis & interpretation
purpose.

From Table 1 to Table 5 we can visualize the country-wise
(U.S.A, Brazil, United Kingdom, Italy, and India) total
Covid-19 cases and total death due to Covid-19 for the
period of August-2020 to November 2020. Table 6
represents the country-wise total covid-19 cases vs. total
death for the period of August 2020 to November 2020.
From the above Table-6 we can find out that U.S.A, Brazil,
United Kingdom, Italy, and India has total number of Covid-
19 cases are 9200983, 3669980, 1326475, 1353893, and
India respectively. Total death reported due to Covid-19 for
U.S.A, Brazil, United Kingdom, Italy, and India are:
118363, 80597, 17259, 20281 and 101108 respectively for
the period of August 2020 to November 2020. As far as
percentage (%) is concerned U.S.A, Brazil, United
International Journal of Management, Sciences, Innovation, and Technology Vol.2, Issue.2, March 2021

Kingdom, Italy, and India reported 1.29%, 2.20%, 1.30%,
1.50% and 1.30% death on total Covid-19 cases
respectively.
Following two formulas has been used in this study for
calculation purpose.
I. Month-wise Covid-19 Case & Death due to Covid-19:
(Last Date of Previous Month or Opening Date of Current
Month - Last Date of the Current Month) = Covid-19 Case
& Death due to Covid-19 for current month
II. Country wise Death Percentage (%)
Total Death for the Period of August 2020 to November
2020 / Total Covid-19 Cases for the Period of August 2020
to November
In the following month-wise and country-wise Covid-19
cases & deaths are discussed through graphical
representation.

World’s Five Most Affected Countries by COVID-19: A Comparative Study

  • 1. © 2021, IJMSIT All Rights Reserved 1 International Journal of Management, Sciences, Innovation, and Technology Research Casestudy. Vol.2, Issue.2, pp.10-15, March (2021) ISSN: 0000-0000 World’s Five Most Affected Countries by COVID-19: A Comparative Study Archisman Nandy Student, St.Agnes School, Kharagpur, India Corresponding Author: e-mail: archismannandy01@gmail.com Available online at: https://ijmsit.com/volume-2-issue-2 Received: 1 Feb 2021 Revised: 3 Feb., 2021 Accepted: 6 Feb, 2021 Abstract— The objective of this study is to make a comparison between five (5) most affected countries (USA, Brazil, U.K., Italy and India) of the world by Covid-19. The study is based on the secondary data. For conducting this study published data in online portal www.worldometers.info has been used. 4 months i.e. August 2020 to November 2020 has been chosen to carry out this study. For data analysis and interpretation Microsoft excel software (version 2019) has been used. Basic arithmetic technique and ratio analysis has been used in this study for data interpretation purpose. For measuring cyclical fluctuations in Covid-19 cases and its corresponding death cases, visual representation has been incorporated as bar diagram. Relevant images have been sourced from authentic sources and used in this study for satisfying the research objective. Finally the study has revealed that during the period of August 2020 to November 2020 Brazil is the most affected country and United States of America is the least affected country based on the mortality rate among the five countries taken as sample for this study. Keywords— Covid 19, Cyclical fluctuations, Mortality. I. INTRODUCTION COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered corona virus. This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. COVID-19 is now a pandemic affecting many countries globally. CoVs are positive-RNA viruses with a crown like appearance under an electron microscope (coronam) is the spike glycoprotients on the envelope. The new corona virus is a respiratory virus which spreads primarily through droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes or through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose (Nucleonix, 2020; Desai,R., 2020). Image 1: Covid-19 Virus [Image Source: Encyclopaedia Inc] Corona virus, have enveloped virions (virus particle) that measure approximately 120nm(1nm=10^-9 metre) in diameter. Club-shaped glycoprotient spikes in the envelope give the viruses a crownlike, or coronal, appearance. The nucleocapsid, made up of a protein shell known as a capsid and containing the viral nucleic acids, is helical or tubular. The Corona virus genome consists of a single strand of positive-sense RNA (Ribonucleic Acid) (Britannica, 2020). Image 2: Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-Cov-2) [Image Source: Encyclopaedia Inc] Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which may cause illness in animals or humans. In humans, several coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such

International Journal of Management, Sciences, Innovation, and Technology Vol.2, Issue.2, March 2021 © 2021, IJMSIT All Rights Reserved 2 as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered coronavirus causes coronavirus disease COVID- 19 (Cohuna District Hospital, 2020). Image 3: Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) [Image Source: Encyclopaedia Inc] 1.1 Origin of the disease The coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) is a highly transmittable and pathogenic viral infection caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS- CoV-2), which emerged in Wuhan, China and spread around the world. Genomic analysis revealed that SARS- CoV-2 is phylogenetically related to severe acute respiratory syndrome-like (SARS-like) bat viruses, therefore bats could be the possible primary reservoir (Shereen, M., Khan, S, & Kazmi, A. et al. ,2020). Image 4: Wuhan City [Image Source: Encyclopaedia Inc] 1.2 Symptoms of Covid-19 The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, dry cough, and tiredness. Other symptoms that are less common and may affect some patients include aches and pains, nasal congestion, headache, conjunctivitis, sore throat, diarrhoea, loss of taste or smell or a rash on skin or discoloration of fingers or toes. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but only have very mild symptoms. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing hospital treatment. Around 1 out of every 5 people who gets COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart and lung problems, diabetes, or cancer, are at higher risk of developing serious illness (Agencia TIC TIMOR I.P., 2020). However, anyone can catch COVID-19 and become seriously ill. People of all ages who experience fever and/or cough associated with difficulty breathing/shortness of breath, chest pain/pressure, or loss of speech or movement should seek medical attention immediately. If possible, it is recommended to call the health care provider or facility first, so the patient can be directed to the right clinic. The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, dry cough, and tiredness. Other symptoms that are less common and may affect some patients include aches and pains, nasal congestion, headache, conjunctivitis, sore throat, diarrhea, loss of taste or smell or a rash on skin or discoloration of fingers or toes. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but only have very mild symptoms (Ministry of Health, Federal Republic of Somalia, 2020).

  • 3. International Journal of Management, Sciences, Innovation, and Technology Vol.2, Issue.2, March 2021 © 2021, IJMSIT All Rights Reserved 3 According to the guideline as prescribed by the World Health Organization (https://www.who.int) people can catch COVID-19 from others who have the virus. ▪ The disease spreads primarily from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth, which are expelled when a person with COVID-19 coughs, sneezes, or speaks. ▪ These droplets are relatively heavy, do not travel far and quickly sink to the ground. People can catch COVID-19 if they breathe in these droplets from a person infected with the virus. ▪ These droplets can land on objects and surfaces around the person such as tables, doorknobs and handrails. ▪ People can become infected by touching these objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, nose or mouth. 1.4 Precautionary measures & protection from Covid-19? ▪ Cleaning hands frequently and thoroughly. ▪ Avoid touching eyes, mouth and nose. ▪ Covering cough with the bend of elbow or tissue. If a tissue is used, discard it immediately and wash hands. ▪ Maintain a distance of at least 1 metre from others. Image 6: Wearing Mask [Image Source: Encyclopaedia Inc] II. LITERATURE REVIEW AND RESEARCH GAP To satisfy the objective of this study the endeavour has taken to review the existing literatures. The study conducted by Pragholapati, A. (2020) has revealed that students tend to focus their discussions on topics very close to their neighbourhood, such as school closing and local news. The author also emphasized that although the positive percentage (%) of COVID-19 Tweets was very low for both demographics, college students proved to be significantly more negative. The COVID-19 pandemic is associated with highly significant levels of psychological distress that, in many cases, would meet the threshold for clinical relevance. Mitigating the hazardous effects of COVID-19 on mental health is an international public health priority (Xiong, J. et.al, 2020). The study conducted by Tee, M. L. et. al. (2020) has revealed that during the early phase of the pandemic in the Philippines, one-fourth of respondents reported moderate-to-severe anxiety and one-sixth reported moderate-to-severe depression and psychological impact. The factors identified can be used to devise effective psychological support strategies. The research work carried out by Cao, W. et. al. (2020) indicated that economic effects, and effects on daily life, as well as delays in academic activities, were positively associated with anxiety symptoms (P < .001). However, social support was negatively correlated with the level of anxiety (P < .001). It is suggested that the mental health of college students should be monitored during epidemics. The existing literatures suggest that there are limited studies conducted in the area of country wise comparison based on the Covid-19 impact on the most affected countries for the period of August 2020 to November 2020. To plug-in the analytical gap a serious attempt has been taken in this study by conceptualizing the objective as follows for this research work. III. OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY: The objective of this study is to make a comparison between five (5) most affected countries (USA, Brazil, U.K., Italy and India) of the world by Covid-19 for the period of August 2020 to November 2020. IV. MATERIALS AND METHODS Secondary data has been used for carrying out this research work. Published data in online portal www.worldometers.info has been extracted for this study. Four (4) months i.e. August 2020 to November 2020 has been chosen to carry out this study. For data analysis and interpretation purpose, Microsoft excel software (version 2019) has been used. Basic arithmetic technique and ratio analysis has been also used in this study for data interpretation purpose. For visual representation bar diagram has been used V. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION Globally, as of 4:32pm CET, 30 December 2020, there have been 80,773,033 confirmed cases of COVID-19, including 1,783,619 deaths, reported to World Health Organization
  • 4. International Journal of Management, Sciences, Innovation, and Technology Vol.2, Issue.2, March 2021 © 2021, IJMSIT All Rights Reserved 4 (WHO). In the following a detailed discussion has been made with respect to the most 5 affected countries (USA, Brazil, U.K., Italy and India) by Covid-19.
