According to WorldoMeter, the U.S. accounts for about one-quarter of all the coronavirus cases in the world, at 4.7 million cases out of a world total of 17.8 million.

The U.S. has recorded over 157,000 deaths. That is 475 deaths for every one million people. It is not the highest death rate in the world, but it is among the highest. It is even worse in Peru, Chile, Spain, the UK, Italy, Sweden, and Belgium.

The U.S. has tested almost 177,000 of every one million people. Some nations have tested more, including Russia, the UK, Israel, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Qatar, Denmark, Luxembourg, and Singapore. When you look at the death rates in these countries, you can see that–contrary to Trump’s assertions–the testing rate does not drive up the infection rate. That’s a non sequitur. Most of those that have tested a higher proportion of their citizens have a lower death rate than the U.S. In Denmark, for example, there are 106 deaths per million, although their testing rate is higher than ours. Qatar has almost the exact same rate of testing, but only 86 deaths per million. Israel has the same testing rate as ours, but only 56 deaths per million.
