March 10, 2020 marks the International Day of Awesomeness. However, the fact that people around the world are dying because of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is not an awesome one.

People from all walks of life are affected by the outbreaks. Concerts and sports events have been cancelled due to the threat posed by the coronavirus.

There are already more than 100,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 across the globe, according to the World Health Organization. Because of this, the WHO is asking the governments of each country to not allow the uncontrolled spread of the disease because it will harm not only the citizens of a country but also the other countries.

Moreover, the WHO noted that using universally applicable actions can slow down the spread of the virus and reduce its impact as demonstrated by China and other countries. Here are the 22 countries with the highest number of confirmed deaths related to the coronavirus disease as of March 10, 2020:
