Why do people like Smoking Joe make false claims like saying the Covid death rate in Europe is lower than the US?
The death rate in Europe is 2.3%
For the US: 2.1%
If you took out the cluster f*** that is New York the US death rate drops to 1.97%

@Heidi- No, that's because we have the third highest population (and I wouldn't trust the numbers from the top 2).
@anon- No, that's deaths per million population NOT the death rate.
@Juana- Whether it's misleading or not that's what we're talking about. If you want to debate which statistics are more accurate that's a different debate. Joe made a factually incorrect statement and I proved it. No that you've lost you want to change the rules. Typical lib.
@Juana-Yes, he said "death rate" and death rate is calculated by deaths/cases even according to worldometer:

@your update2: When did Joe specifically refer to "deaths per cases"? No serious website does, certainly not Worldometers.
@your update: "Deaths per cases" is misleading since no one knows how many asymptomatic cases there are in every country. Click on "Deaths / M pop."
Only four European countries (excl. San Marino and Andorra) have a worse death rate than the US. The rest is doing better, some of them MUCH better.
