The U.S. Has The World's Highest Coronavirus Death Rate. by NGpatriot: 7:42am On Mar 21, 2020



The U.S. has the world's highest coronavirus death rate at more than 5% - a number that reflects the country's lack of testing

The US has the world's highest death rate for the new coronavirus: Based on the ratio of confirmed deaths to reported cases, 5.4% of patients have died. That's far higher than the global rate of 3.4% that World Health Organization reported on Tuesday — and even higher than mainland China's 3.7%.


Only the Philippines has a higher coronavirus death rate than the US, and that's because it has only had three cases. One of them, a man from Wuhan, China, became the first known fatality outside China in early February.

It's highly unlikely that the coronavirus is more deadly in the U.S.; rather, the number is likely the result of limited testing in the U.S.

Because widespread testing wasn't possible in the country in recent weeks, the CDC held stringent standards for who qualified for a test. Until Wednesday, the agency only tested people who had recent exposure to a confirmed patient, had travelled to a country with an outbreak, or required hospitalization.

So the U.S. has not tested or diagnosed many patients with mild cases.

"There's another whole cohort that is either asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic," Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in a February 6 briefing. "We're going to see a diminution in the overall death rate."

As of Thursday, the US' national coronavirus case count was 221. That total includes results from state-level coronavirus testing, implemented more widely. The CDC had only confirmed 99 cases across the country as of Thursday at noon. If you calculate the death rate based on only those federally verified cases, it jumps to roughly 10%.

God does not hate them but this is a lesson to solely depend of God.

I don't think so.
the fact is that China was never open and transparent with this virus issue especially at the initial stages.
recall that the doctor that first raised the alarm was arrested and prosecuted for spreading fake news.
at the peak of the crisis in Wuhan,corpses were being picked up from the streets.
so i feel China had worst statistics (but concealed it) compared to the Western democracies who are more open and reliable in terms of the information coming out.

Trump's speeches are part entertainment, part comedy and chaos, and confusion. Even his scientists and doctors laugh and shake their heads behind him.

this analysis is based on the statics of those infected out of those who died. China, albeit sadly, remain the highest country with the number of death from this cursed virus. We dont pray for any more casualties.

I taught English for several years and I can tell you authoritatively that you are the wrong one here. Saying one nation has a higher rate of Coronavirus than the other as a parameter for God's love is the only thing evil here and you are the EVIL one.

Now that the coronavirus is already in Nigeria and a person with no foreign contact has gotten it, let's see what happens in the next few weeks. Instead of you all to be praying that it doesn't spread in Nigeria with the abysmal healthcare system we have here, you're comparing us to America.

Your country is still battling hunger, boko haram, infrastructure decay, bad roads and the list goes on...

Once again, you are talking in the rubbish...

If much more advanced countries are recording deaths in droves from this virus, Nigerians should continue to mount maximum pressures on their leaders and cooperate with them to stem the spread of this novel virus in Nigeria.

This isn't no time to be hypocritical, ass-licking and praise singing any non-challant leader.
