India is not a country that usually springs to mind when you think of good
hygiene practices but even India has handled the COVID-19 pandemic better
than the USA has. Much better. India reported its first case of the virus
about the same time the US did and its first death occurred just 2 weeks
after the first in the US, but as of May 7 at 12:05 GMT India has only had
1,787 deaths, but the USA has had 74,810 deaths. And yet India's population
is 3.9 times as large as the US population.

And Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere but in the
entire population of 10.7 million people there has only been 12 deaths, if
Haiti had the same population as the US it would have had 368 deaths. I
remind you that the US has had 74,810.
