Coronavirus cases and deaths per capita
The United States of America is making the top ten of the wrong lists. Namely, compared to the other countries in the world, we are where we don't want be on the lists of coronavirus cases and deaths per capita.

Here are some reports on how the nations of the world are dealing with COVID-19. Even allowing for the inevitable variations in global epidemiology reporting, America is not looking good. Note: the first death rate list is measuring per one million population. The New York Times list is per 100,000. The Times also used a longer, more inclusive list of countries.

Most of the countries that are ahead of America had their epidemic peaks earlier than America and are now seeing a decline or leveling off of their coronavirus case and death rates.

COVID-19 Cases Per Million Inhabitants
In his July 1, 2020 Statista.com report, Martin Armstrong writes:
"Using Johns Hopkins University and World Bank figures, this infographic takes countries with a population of at least four million and over five thousand confirmed cases and calculates the rate per one million inhabitants. Using this measure, Chile has by far the most severe rate with 14,736 cases, followed by Kuwait and Peru. The United States, now approaching three million total cases, is fourth with 8,200 per million people."

"Of course, the number of actual cases in a country is going to be higher than official figures show, with testing rates also varying dramatically. As with all figures relating to confirmed cases, they should be treated with caution."


COVID-19 deaths worldwide per one million population by country.
By Raynor de Best, Jul 17, 2020

In Statista.com, Mr. Raynor wrote: "This table aims to provide a complete picture on the topic, but it very much relies on data that has become more difficult to compare. As the coronavirus pandemic developed across the world, countries already used different methods to count fatalities, and they sometimes changed them during the course of the pandemic."
