    but both countries are starting to get better.
    Individual regions have much higher rates though - Bergamo province has about 2000/m in official figures and over 4000/m estimated excess mortality - and that's only the deaths in March: https://www.ecodibergamo.it/stories/...of_1347414_11/

    Coronavirus in the U.S.: Latest Map and Case Count - The New York Times
    GitHub - nytimes/covid-19-data - An ongoing repository of data on coronavirus cases and deaths in the U.S.

    The state-by-state data is interesting, because one can see how each state has been behaving. New York is odd. it had a burst of increase in mid-March before slowing down to its previous increase rate.

    Also, deaths are a lagging indicator, since people who have the virus take some days to either recover or die.

    Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) - Statistics and Research - Our World in Data
    Coronavirus Source Data - Our World in Data

    I haven't tried analyzing that one yet.

    One thing is certain, that deaths from the virus are being under reported.

    So are cases of the virus, since testing isn't being done as often as it should and it's assumed that a fairly large percentage of people are asymptomatic. That's the real bitch. People can be spreading this shit without ever realizing it.

    I don't think we have a clue as to how many people have been infected, so mortality rates are impossible to know.

    *We*, the world (not, fortunately, my country), know a lot more than *you*, the US.

    You, in the US, are lucky enough to come late to the party, where China (to the extent they can be trusted), South Korea, Italy, and Spain can already answer many of your question.

    If only you were wise enough to ask them...

    We are. It's our federal "leadership" with right wing authoritarian disease who won't.

    GOP and Trump supporters will not be able to say they didn't know. Vote in numbers too big to manipulate.

    TB vaccination again.
    A study of 178 countries by an Irish medical consultant working with epidemiologists at the University of Texas in Houston shows countries with vaccination programmes – including Ireland – have far fewer coronavirus cases by a factor 10, compared to where BCG programmes are no longer deployed
    Weird, I am looking at https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ and it is only factor of 2 between Ireland and UK

    Here's a survey that will help provide data if you haven't taken it already. It's U.S. based.
