Brunei among nations with lowest death rate from pollution

Brunei Darussalam, Qatar and Iceland have the lowest pollution death rates ranging from 15 to 23, according to a new study in the journal The Lancet Planetary Health published on Tuesday.

The pre-pandemic study is based on calculations derived from the Global Burden of Disease database and the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation in Seattle.

The report said pollution remains responsible for approximately nine million deaths per year, corresponding to one in six deaths worldwide.
