We will be closing in on 1/4 million COVID dead in USA by election day.  4% of world population, 21% of deaths. It is what it is?  Really?

Update:

Ed Winter and NoName, below, appear to be unable to read a complex sentence.

The US has 4% of the world's population.  The US has 21% of the world's deaths due to COVID.  Does that help you boys?  I know commas are hard.

Update 2:

Black Adder: 190,000 is fast closing in on 250,000.   It is certainly a lot closer to 1/4M than it is to zero!

    Uh, no where close. We've only just crossed 140,000 and most of those were from New York, California and Washington back in March and April. About 18,000 dead in July. Multiply that by 3, we're looking at about 190...but that's being generous. 

    Still, what do you suggest? Close everything down and send everyone home to huddle in their basement? That's a great plan!

    Response: Nice try, but no. And this disease is spreading all over the world. And, it will continue to. That's what diseases do. So, the more important question, given that FACT, what do YOU propose we do?

    The CDC projected (in Mar.) 170,000 - 1.7M deaths in the US before this thing is contained (no relief in sight). A lot of the suffering could be avoided if trump had used his executive power listening to the experts in virology. But trump thinks he knows far more than he does. For example, testing is one of the major tools in mitigation. It should be ubiquitous w/ FAST results by now. Trump doesn't like testing. He says it make us (him) look bad. He does that to himself.

    Lol... I don't think people understand what you're saying. The US has 4% of the world's population but 21% of coronavirus deaths. It is what it is because people allowed it to be like this. In an ideal world, we would have had 6 weeks of lockdown, the virus would have been eradicated, and we all could have gone back to normal.

    Apparently some people don't realize 330 million out of 8 billion  = 4.1% either...

    Yes, really.  It might be harsh, but the virus is going to do what the virus is going to do.  Neither government nor medicine can stop a virus.

    In fairness, that was an uncommon moment of honesty. Trump spends most of his time telling people that things aren’t what they are.

    4% of the world population...? That is the worst math I have ever seen. Well, we all would of been fine if China and the WHO hadn't of screwed over the entire planet by trying to cover it up until it had spread everywhere and by downplaying it when it first came to light.
