The number of dead in the US has now reached 176,000 and shows no sign of slowing down. This is very unlike other countries that have high death rates. In the last month the increase in the number of deaths has been:
- US 24.5%
- Sweden 3.0%
- Belgium 1.5%
- Italy 1.1%
- France 0.9%
- Spain 0.8%
Every other first world country has managed to slow the rate of infection and death. The US is in a league of its own.
I think it is inevitable the US will reach 250,000.
