Things are running out of control in the EU27 and remain out of control in the U.S. of A. Here are the latest daily numbers:
- The U.S. has a vastly higher death rate per 1 million population than the EU27 rate:
- Current death rate per 1 million of population in the U.S. is 681.7
- Current death rate per 1 million of population in the EU27 is 361
- Put differently, current U.S. death rate per capita is 89 percent above that for the EU27, although this gap is now slowly closing, down from 91% in the prior update
- Overall counts of deaths in the U.S. are now above the EU27, since July 12
- Current excess gap is at +67,397. Adjusted for population and pandemic timing differences, the gap is 114,621
- The EU27 are now experiencing a second wave of infections. As the result, over October to-date, EU27 new case numbers have surpassed the U.S. in all but 2 days and deaths on 7 occasions
- In the U.S. pandemic continues to rage and re-accelerating from August-September slowdown. Deaths are lagging, but still running at elevated levels and are more recently rising once again.
- In the EU27, the pandemic is back with more than a vengeance: daily new cases counts are vastly above anything we have seen in the first wave. Death counts are lagging behind the prior peak, but a re massively above June-September numbers and climbing up.
