The COVID-19 fatality rate is not much worse than the garden-variety
non-1918 flu, but it can still kill far more people because its infection
rate is much higher; the number of Americans who have become infected with
COVID-19 has jumper from 15 people on February 15 to 4,950,144 people today
August 4, an increase of 54,504 infections just since yesterday. With just
4% of the world's population the USA now has 26.25% of all the COVID-19
infections in the entire world. Anyone who does not find that rate of
growth terrifying does not understand the situation.
