- 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 690.0
- Current death rate per 1 million of population in the EU27 is 370.3
- Put differently, current U.S. death rate per capita is 86 percent above that for the EU27, though this gap is now slowly closing (it was 90% a week ago).
- Overall counts of deaths in the U.S. are now above the EU27, since July 12. Current excess gap is at +67,604. Adjusted for population and pandemic timing differences, the gap is 114,869.
- 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 11 occasions
