Which 10 countries have the highest fatality rates for COVID-19? (# of deaths in brackets)

1. San Marino - 12.75% (32)
2. Italy - 12.25% (14681)
3. Democratic Republic of the Congo - 10.81% (16)
4. France - 10.11% (6507)
5. Netherlands - 9.46% (1487)
6. United Kingdom - 9.45% (3605)
7. Spain - 9.39% (11198)
8. Indonesia - 9.11% (181)
9. Algeria - 8.97% (105)
10. Belgium - 6.82% (1143)

In comparison...

15. Iran - 6.19% (3294)
29. China - 4.07% (3322)
31. Brazil - 3.95% (363)
39. Mexico - 3.31% (50)
50. United States - 2.67% (7371)
57. Japan - 2.41% (63)
74. Canada - 1.49% (187)
78. Germany - 1.40% (1275)
84. Saudi Arabia - 1.23% (25)
89. Norway - 1.10% (59)
104. Russia - 0.82% (34)
113. Israel - 0.54% (40)

The further you go down this list, with few exceptions (such as Israel, which is low due to its high development but also young population, very rare in the world), the countries took more and more precautions to combat against COVID-19.

Stay home and stay safe.

Italy's healthcare system was ranked the 2nd best in the world, but that's meaningless when you run out of hospitals. That can happen anywhere if people aren't careful.

Germany has the most hospital beds per capita of any country in the world! Only the United States comes close to beating it in that stat.

Me: I'm going to paint my walls white because I want them bright.

People: That's racist!

Me: Okay, how about black?

People: That's a nice color.

Me: ......

This article talks about the reasons why naming diseases is different now:
“ Laura Spinney: “One of the few certainties we have about the Spanish Flu Pandemic is that it didn’t start in Spain. We actually don’t know where it did start – but we know it didn’t start in Spain. The Spanish felt, and to a very great degree were, stigmatised by this.

In 2015, the World Health Organisation (WHO) put out guidelines for how to name a disease. I think the motivation for that was mainly to avoid this kind of stigmatisation, this kind of kneejerk naming of a disease after the place it appears to first manifest itself, or the sector of the population or the animal it first appears in. Because remember, in 2009, H1N1 flu was initially called “swine flu”.

The swine flu name was unhelpful in many ways. For example, the Egyptian government ordered the slaughter of the country’s swine herd, which was mainly the property of the minority of Coptic Christians in that country, so their local economy was wiped out in one stroke. And in fact, by the time it was in humans, it was a disease that was being transmitted from human to human so it made no difference either. And in fact, to go back a little bit further in history, that swine flu was given to pigs by humans in 1918. So it came back from pigs to humans in 2009, you know, ironic historical reprisal.

Alright, great!

The CDC has recommended that all Americans wear face masks in public.

Brother E: I hope the face mask thing doesn't become a rule because some people said face masks don't really work anyway.

Yes, Abu, thanks for clearing it.
