BBC maps deadly hotspots around the globe

UK: BBC developed a map which shows the country with the highest proportion of deaths per million people for a specific type of accident, illness or other cause. For example, for shark attacks, the global hotspot is Australia. Although sharks only account for a small number of total deaths in the country per year, the number, per million head of population, is higher than anywhere else in the world. Similarly, there are more deaths due to road accidents in Namibia, per million people, than any other country in the world.
