Researchers are hard at work trying to come up with an answer and there’s no clear consensus, but one telling fact stands out: The number of deaths the U.S. endured in April is larger than the combined total during the entirety of the pandemic for the next two countries on the list, Italy and Great Britain (54,738).
Populations (per https://www.statista.com/statistics/1104709/coronavirus-deaths-worldwide-per-million-inhabitants/)
Italy = 60.43 million
Great Britain = 66.49 million
USA = 327.17 million
Summary: USA has 2.57 times the combined population of Italy and Great Britain.
I also note the editorializing ” . . . telling fact . . .”. What makes this ‘fact’ telling?
I find USAToday useful for learning latest DNC talking points, less useful for learning latest news.
