    It's incredible to think that out of 195 countries in the world, this disease has made it to 190 of them. Modern travel has helped more than just people get around unfortunately.

    Paris (AFP) - COVID-19 could lead to more than 80,000 deaths in the US and overwhelm hospital capacity nationally as soon as early April even if social distancing measures are respected, new research showed Thursday.
    US virus deaths may top 80,000 despite confinement: study

    Rather meaningless to make such a comparison.

    Look at Italy - only 1,000 behind the US with a population less than a quarter that of America.

    The OP is an example of the insantity TDS brings.

    The chart shows the USA has one of the lowest death rates per infected in the world per population.

    Yes, many Democrats are truly furious and beside themselves that not enough Americans are dying - and yes - they blame Trump for this.

    And yet when compared with the rest of the 12 industrialized nations listed we are 9th in terms of deaths per million and total cases per million.

    Yeah; I feel for Italy. Almost the same number of coronavirus cases but only a 5th of our population.

    1. We've been catching up to Italy for a while now. We are growing faster in number of cases than them. So, I doubt Italy will ever be higher than us after tomorrow. We are still not on lockdown across the country.

    2. You are right about population size difference. But don't let Trump know about it - I think he likes winning too much. If you insist though, by that measure, we are 5 times ahead of China, and growing. Cool!

    1 milestone at a time. We are just getting started. We are well ahead of China on those metrics as well.

    Yes, we blame Trump for it - the video in the OP explains why. He stonewalled all preparation for this. AND we are still not on lockdown across the country. There are a lot of things he did wrong - from allowing the virus to fester on cruise ship and then releasing passengers to healthcare workers without PPE, to installing censorship tzar Pence over healthcare professionals, to explicitly forbidding public advice for people over age 60 to fly, to wasting precious months of belittling the virus instead of preparing for it and being on top of testing and procuring supplies. Heck, he even was the last one to hold rallies when he was not even running against anyone serious in primaries.

    Ahh...

    The US is also 3 weeks behind the rest of the world.. it will only climb.

    Yes, many Democrats are truly furious and beside themselves that not enough Americans are dying - and yes - they blame Trump for this.
    Because it is Trumps fault. The deaths now and the ones to come in the red states like Florida and elsewhere, are fully Trumps fault. Lack of preparedness and cooperation and leadership is why the US will have double the amount of infected by this time next week.

    I do admit, I was wrong in my original prediction that the US would pass Italy by Friday.. they did it a day early and managed to pass even China.
