Source:  https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/coronavirus-us-cases.html


We have Good News and Bad News about Covid. Sort of.

My table below:

As of Dec 15, 2020USAWorldUS Percent
Total Covid Deaths303,9681,680,00018%
Total Covid Cases16,800,00073,000,00023%
New Deaths Dec 152,95713,22822%
New Cases Dec 15201,649611,74933%

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.
