That's not the death rate. That is deaths per capita. A disease that kills everyone it infects but only infects 1 person is still a 100% fatal disease.

For deaths per capita, we are 21st in the world. Out of almost 200 countries, we are in the top 10% for coronavirus killing our citizens. We are that bad at keeping the disease non-fatal.

And that's actually an improvement! This time last year, we were 12th. It was an absolute disgrace.

Rankings don't mean anything if the death rate is less than a bad flu. By the way where is the flu now?

"This time last year, we were 12th. It was an absolute disgrace."

But we didn't move from 12th to 21st for any political reason, just that the at risk folks died off last year. No, I can't cite you any stats or studies, but I'd wager that we had a higher PER CAPITA set of elderly, obese, smokers, with hypertension than most countries. Once those specimens died off the rest of us were surviving more readily.

Plus, thanks to operation warp speed, we had a vaccine that, if you believe the propaganda, won't prevent you from contracting the "virus" but will make it more likely for you to survive it.

The CDC had this numbers. You are correct. Once the vulnerable died off, the deaths went way down until people started to get the vaccine.
