So the United States has 22% of the worldís diagnosed covid cases and 20% of the worldís confirmed deaths from covid

I donít know that we really can say our health care system is doing a bang up job

I think that's more of an indictment of a federal government that fails to lead and a general population that won't give up their "Freedoms".

This is not about whether government encourages mask use.. itís about what happens once people are sick


Once people get covid how are we doing in America compared to the rest of the world?

Anyone know?

Back of the envelope rough calculation

US death rate about 1.66%
Israel death rate 0.75%
Argentina death rate 2.5%
Mexico death rate 9%
Germany 2%
Canada 2.5%


So maybe our health care system is doing a good job particularly given the strain


Mexico probably has done the worst job.. case count accuracy probably varies greatly with countries that donít test a lot probably looking worse..

Anne Arundel now has the worst rate of coronavirus spread among the 8 most populous Maryland counties

Not surprising considering its concentration of insurrectionist types.

I hope this vaccine doesn't become an annual thing

Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine expected to provide immunity for at least 1 year

All signs point to this being an annual thing. Also, the current slate of vaccines may only be 60% effective against the new South African variant. Expect more mutations that may or may not be controlled by the vaccine. We'll always be playing catch-up developing vaccines to deal with new strains, and it will become a guessing game as to what mix of vaccines should go in the shot.

This is exactly what is happening with the flu shot. COVID-19 is the new influenza.

Is it time to let only the strong survive? At this rate, life will never be back to normal with multiple strains, mutations, refusal to get the vaccine, etc... Le sigh.

There are other contributing factors (age, pre-existing conditions, etc). Numbers alone donít tell the story.

My offspring received a switch over the holidays and I've been enjoying it as well.
