# So far it’s been a lame pandemic

The percentage being expressed are improper.

Percentage of death to confirmed infected:
U.S. 462 / 35,409 = 1.3%
W.W. 15,372 / 354,640 = 4.3%

Percentage of confirmed infected to population:
U.S. 35,409 / 330,000,000= .01%
W.W. 354,640 / 7,500,000,000 = .004%

Italy’s Population – 60,480,000
U.S. Population - 330,000,000

The US has 981,000 beds roughly

Italy has 180,000

Hospital beds stats

Math and critical thinking seems to escape the populace more and more

Motto around here was, "deny ignorance"

Here is a link to that Johns Hopkins study ranking countries of the world best prepared to handle a pandemic:

The USA is #1 and Italy is #31.

How is Italy more prepared?

I am genuinely intrigued as to how the poster came to his or her conclusion.

You forgot to carry the decimal. It's 1% and 4%, and those numbers will go up when American hospitals start to get overloaded. Italy is up to about 10%, and they have a better healthcare system with more beds per capita than we do.

Itr may go up, but not that high. Italy has the oldest population in Europe, and from things Ive read most of the deaths there had pre-existing health issues.

This is entertaining. Surprised it took so many posts before someone corrected you. Try a calculator.

If it kills anyone you love or like it will not be so lame, will it.

I choose to research and assess my own opinions based on that research..... you do to it seems

Happy to see there are still smart people out there......

Side note: I bought toilet paper a month ago and still have plenty

Double check your math before you check mine

I did. Divide number of deaths by number of cases, you get .012. To get a percent, you move the decimal to the left twice. 1.2% in America.

To be clear I wasn’t agreeing with the other member.... I was posting those stats because Italy is clearly not more prepared or has the capabilities to be so.

Now divide number of citizens by number of beds. They have more beds per capita than we do. Do you know what per capita means?

I think that list needs to be reviewed. Because, if the USA Is supposed to be the best at handling this then we’re all screwed.

And it’s not sounding like your able to organise across the country properly.

You’ve got individual states outbidding each other for supplies. Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York says “I’m bidding up against other states”,”California offers \$4, I offer \$5, another state calls in and offers \$6”

I’m from the U.K. and aren’t saying we’re the best prepared in any way but at least we’ve got a joined up health service that can cooperate far easier.

I edited this post to reflect the correct percentages.

Apparently the virus has destroyed people's math ability.

How's that fancy graphic playing out in the real world? Look around... does this look like #1? Sure doesn't. Looks like a mess and less hospital beds in the USA per capita than most of the other countries facing the larger numbers.

posted on Mar, 23 2020 @ 12:11 PM

Yes..... per capita isn’t a factor in this argument....

We have almost 10 times the beds and they only have a quarter of our population...... also they have far more elderly people.

Factor in population. To be accurate it should be beds per number of people.

Apparently the virus has destroyed people's math ability.

And apparently it's destroyed most people's ability to realize that we've barely been tested in the USA.
You think those numbers are it? That's the count?
We can't even get tests. People who aren't on deaths door aren't even being accepted into hospitals.
The real numbers are unknown... but one thing that is for sure, there are more.

Tell China it's lame they are reporting 21 million less cell phone customers, you can't do squat in China without a phone.

And there are many countries outwith the US to look at to see what happens.
