|Serious question. Italy has a ~10% death rate. Spain is pretty higher too. So what’s driving the difference? Is it treatment or otherwise that results in a low death rate for us?|
US ~70k infections ~1k deaths
Italy ~75k infections ~7.5k deaths
Spain ~55k infections ~4K deaths.
What’s causing the difference? Treatment, numbers misreported or something else ?
