The graphs above show data from the world. It is clear that the Pandemic is worsening substantially. And because the number of cases in increasing very rapidly, it is very likely that the death rate will also increase very rapidly.
The table below is taken from data from countries around the world. The USA has the 7th highest number of total cases per million people among the world's nations. And the countries with a higher rate are quite small, in some cases really city states, which because they live at a higher density are also likely to have more cases.
The USA is number 14 among total deaths per 1 million population.

Some of the lower death rate can be attributed to our better more sophisticated health care system. But our number of cases is are going way up and is a leading indicator for deaths, which will likely follow the increase in cases.

We have Good News and Bad News about Covid. Sort of.
My table below:
|As of Dec 15, 2020||USA||World||US Percent|
|Total Covid Deaths||303,968||1,680,000||18%|
|Total Covid Cases||16,800,000||73,000,000||23%|
|New Deaths Dec 15||2,957||13,228||22%|
|New Cases Dec 15||201,649||611,749||33%|
The Bad News
The USA, affluent and well educated and with some of the best health care in the world, has a much higher percent of Covid cases and deaths than our percent of the world population.
The Good News
The world is not in as bad a shape as the USA.
Why? Lots of reasons, but In my judgement inept leadership is near the top.
