Leffler CT, Ing E. , Lykins JD, Hogan MC, McKeown CA, Grzybowski A. Association of country-wide coronavirus mortality with demographics, testing, lockdowns, and public wearing of masks.

Wide variation in mortality vs. illness (COVID-19) due to SARS-CoV-2 virus between countries was reported. Potential factors for nationwide coronavirus-related mortality including age, sex, temperature, urbanisation, viral testing, smoking, duration of infection, blockades and public mask-wearing norms were investigated. A multivariate analysis was conducted in this regard.
