Covid-19 in the world’s top wine producing countries

The US leads the way in terms of having the highest number of coronavirus cases among the world’s top 10 wine producing countries, with over 4m active cases.

Unsurprisingly given the number of active cases, the United States also has the highest number of reported coronavirus deaths of the world’s top wine producing nations, at over 252,000.

France is the second biggest Covid hotspot in the wine world at the moment, with over 1.8m active cases in the country. It also has one of the highest death rates, with over 45,000 people having died from the virus in France.

The world’s number three winemaking nation – Spain – also has the third highest number of active Covid cases at the moment, at over 1.5 million.

While Italy – the world’s top winemaking country by volume – was one of the first countries to be seriously hit by Covid, resulting in over 45,000 deaths, the number of active cases in the country is significantly below the US, France and Spain at just over 700,000.

China, which is currently the 10th largest wine producer in the world by volume, only has 353 active coronavirus cases at the moment and just over 4,000 registered deaths since the virus first hit.

While Chile has suffered nearly 15,000 deaths from the virus, there are under 10,000 active Covid cases reported in the South American country.
