By comparison the USA is now testing around 230,000 people a day, about double the rate of the UK based on population. The countries leading testing based on population include Germany, Russia and Italy.
On total tests per million Russia is at no. 21, U.K. 26 and USA 35 Germany 38 Italy 24
Monoco, Gibraltar and the UAE are 1, 2, and 3
If the U.K. were to stop testing it would still take 2 weeks for the USA to catch up.
I would be cautious taking testing from any single source, not every country posts their tests on every tracking site. It is difficult as well as some partially post their tests and even post two sets of data.
If you looked at the data for May, The USA, Italy & Russia move well up the scale to occupy the top 3 positions. For my rankings since Jan 1 ignoring small countries like your top three as being irreverent. I only include larger countries with population of 5M or more. Always a problem with unreliable sources, for this reason I have left China out
Italy ranks no 1, the top 20 based on tests per 1000, the rankings are
