Wow, while seemingly trying really hard, gaining 7.1 more deaths per 100,000, America simply can’t keep up, dropping from 9th to 10th.
And Sweden, arguably trying harder than any other country, drops a spot despite gaining just over another 2.5 deaths per 100,000 pop.
And France has dropped out of the top 10 altogether, displaced by upstarts Peru and Chile.https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/data/mortality
Keep in mind that this is a marathon not a sprint. The standings are likely to change as countries struggle with how to, and how not to, open schools for the Fall.
