Menges Group 5 Slide Series Special Edition: Comparison of USA to Worldwide COVID Per Capita Death Rates

The Menges Group puts out these great analyses and insights each month. And is kind enough to let us repost them for the MM audience. Check out themengesgroup.com to learn more about the work they do. 

This week’s edition of our 5 Slide Series assesses the COVID death rate in the United States in a global context. The cumulative COVID death rate in the USA to date is 6.6 times higher than the rest of the world’s collective rate. Of the 160 countries whose COVID death rates have been tracked by Johns Hopkins University, the USA’s rate is 10th highest. One of this edition’s summary tables is shown below.

This edition also speaks to the need for accurate and objective data dissemination to optimally address the pandemic.
