That is still meaningless, because you don't say what form of '220V'
you are talking about. if you are talking residential US wiring, you
have to get across both sides of the line. One side to ground is 120V.
You also don't state the conditions that either incident occurs, as
well. You have given no valid data to form a valid conclusion.
You can't have a sense of humor, if you have no sense.

I meant 220V one phase to ground.
In the same situation and condition, is it more dangerous to get an
electric shock of 120V or 220V ?
Thank you ;)
There are too many factors beside voltage. There have been cases of people
getting across 13KV to ground and surviving and others of 120V to ground not
surviving.In the first- spasms can throw one clear of contact and the heart
can start normally. In the second, the heart may not recover normal rhythm.
Duration, body current, health are factors.
Voltage, except as it influences these is not of concern.
Fibrillation at relatively low internal currents can be more lethal than
complete heart stoppage at higher internal currents. There is some data
floating around ( I have some of this somewhere in a back closet) regarding
both safe current levels and time to fibrillation for a current at a given
Due to the lack of voluntary subjects (pigs don't volunteer) there is a
certain amount of statistical data.
Certain states which have electrocution as a punishment may have data but,
on the other hand, overkill is
overdoing it is quite certain- even if it is a bit messy.
