The epidemic, which first appeared in Wuhan, China in December 2019 and spread to all continents in a short time, affected every nation in different dimensions. Although Covid-19 does not discriminate between individuals, it poses a heavy burden in the disadvantaged group in terms of the course of the disease and causes of death. Deaths in those with additional diseases and intensifying the age of 65 show that the epidemic is targeting a specific population. Therefore, pandemic-based elderly mortality rates are aimed to be seen more clearly with an international comparative table by considering a wide range of old age and other indicators. In this context, 85 countries with more than 5000 cases until September 25 were selected to the sample group. Cluster analysis was used to understand whether there is a relationship between Covid-19 case / death rates and the aging processes of countries. The relationship of the 5 clusters that emerged as a result of this, with the elderly mortality rates caused by Covid-19, was taken into the center and the relationship between Covid-19/Elderly-Death was understood more clearly when international comparisons were made. It was determined that elderly deaths from Covid-19 decreased from the oldest first cluster to the youngest cluster. In addition, elderly deaths from Covid-19 were higher in developed countries than in undeveloped countries. Potential support rate was low where deaths associated with Covid-19 were concentrated. Access to clean water, healthcare spending, and the proportion of female cabinet representatives were found to be weakly associated with deaths from Covid-19. Multiple Linear Regression Analysis was conducted to examine the relationship between epidemic mortality rate of the elderly and 11 factors consisting of socio-economic, health and political indicators. As a result, it was found to have a positive intermediate variance between Covid-19-related elderly mortality and other data. In the last part of the study, the Covid-19 outbreak in the capture and death rates of the elderly population in Turkey compared to other countries and assessed the current outbreak management.
