Y ¿A cuánto está la tasa de mortalidad per cápita?

México tiene 126,000,000 de habitantes mientras Francia tiene 67,000,000. También vale decir que México es todavía un país en desarrollo y me pregunto cuál es la tasa particular de mortalidad entre los que padecen de coronavirus y no la tasa bruta.

And yet Mexico is acting all high and mighty and putting on a show by closing their border.

Mexico has terrible testing and likely has a much worse outbreak than it's numbers suggest while America tests 500,000 people per day.

https://ourworldindata.org/coronaviru​s​/country/mexico?country=~MEX

What is important to note about these case figures?

the reported case figures on a given date does not necessarily show the number of new cases on that day: this is due to delays in reporting;
the actual number of cases is likely to be much higher than the number of confirmed cases - this is due to limited testing.

You don't think America is testing? I get everyone hates trump, but a lot of the testing isn't federal:

https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/testing/i​n​ternational-comparison

The U.S. has conducted more COVID-19 tests than any other country. However, there is no expert consensus on a recommended target for the raw number of tests or even the rate of tests per capita - and the graph above demonstrates why using these statistics alone can be misleading.

The typical media reporting of these demographic numbers drives me crazy.  Funny thing the highest numbers almost always correspond to high population numbers.  This really means nothing and worst yet it is very misleading.

It's like saying that the US is having a huge baby boom, because there are 100000 times more pregnant women in the US than in Luxemburg.

Too lazy to look it up but what are the numbers on a per capita basis?

People are blinded by their hatred of Putin and Trump (not that I like Trump) on this site and ignore facts when it doesn't fit their narrative. I can understand why people hate me here, but it's sad that they can't see past their own hate.

OK We are testing that many per day. Because of states and private. As you just quoted, there is no per capita figures to compare with other countries.

I never said our testing was because of Trump (it isn't, he's farking horrible and causing it to be worse). However, considering the data we have and the anecdotal and financial evidence from other counties, the USA is doing far more testing in total than any other country and is doing well per capita.

Glad everyone can argue about testing and political superiority still. Makes everything feel normal.

Meh. We're still #3 by numbers and #2 as a proportion of population (San Marino and Andorra don't count). Boris's "policies" (to use the term loosely) are going to keep us there for some time, or even get us promotion.

On the other had, Mexico has twice as many recovered cases as France, and is doing better on the Serious/Critical Cases metric. They are in no danger of catching up to El Norte. On the other hand, the world's largest democracy is at risk of catching up. I speak of India, which has four times your population and can nonetheless run an Election that isn't 100% Trumpshiated.

How Chile Ended Up With One Of The Highest COVID-19 Rates


Sort of true, but that's using "total cases".  That doesn't tell you how they're actually faring right now.

I hate this business of using "total cases" for stats, because that includes everybody who is either recovered or dead.  What I care about are active cases per capita.  Total cases is just historical trivia.

When you look at that, Chile today (July 5 2020) has 1 active case per 678 persons.  Brazil has 1 per 397 so right now Brazil is actually doing worse than Chile, i.e. you're safer in Chile than in Brazil today.  The active case rate per capita is falling in Chile faster than in Brazil.

USA has 1 case per 215 which is obviously worse. France has 1 per 1088.  Sweden continues doubling down on stupid and has 1 per 175.

South Korea has 1 per 54775 which is just down in the noise.

This page is a bit crude but shows the current situation for any country.

You hit on a very important point.

Comparing México to France is just silly.  Nearly 20% of México's population lives in one giant petri dish, and the Mexican health system provides wildly disparate levels of service compared to an amazingly linear one for France.

Ministry of Health: kiss your ass good bye!. I've seen lines of 100s of people outside "emergency" rooms. Seguro Social: you have a chance.  This is their equivalent of US private insurance.  BEST: private hospitals and doctors in the largest cities and wealthy areas provide excellent specialty-trained physicians and high-technology tertiary-care medical centers.  Most of these docs are trained in Europe or are ex-pats.
