With all the Covid rallys Trump and Pence are holding all over the country, I'm sure we can get to that coveted 1 death per minute (1,440 mins per day) maybe even 2 per minute! Come on, man!

Check the statistics for yourself - the main problem is that unlike terrorism or whatever, because you don't personally see these people die, they die silently in hospitals - they just disappear one day and never come back again. There could even be victims on your street - if you didn't know them personally, how are you going to know they were killed by covid?

In some of the worst hit areas it's over 1 in 1000 people have died so far, but that still isn't enough for most people to know someone personally or via a friend who has died - statistically you'd need to be looking at 1 in 200 to hit that personal level.

It's amazing to think that a number of people equal to 9/11 are dying of covid every 4 days, it kind of puts into perspective how insane the panic over muslim terrorists is/was when they actually killed relatively so few people.

Right now they could blow a plane out of the sky every single day and it's be fewer people dead than covid.

If there are 1440 minutes in a day (24x60), then 1 death every 2 minutes is only 720 deaths in a day.

I mean I guess if you are a moron and think there are fewer deaths than reported, it's hard to believe.

Otherwise it's just a matter of doing the math.

The government itself, dumbass. There are 263,520 minutes in the last 6 months. 174,405 deaths have occurred in that time according to the official US government figures. (this is calculated by taking the current total and subtracting the total on 26th april)

I'll let you do the final calculation yourself.

We're 10th worst in the world out of 217 listed countries in terms of deaths per capita. With our wealth and infrastructure, there's no reason for this other than gross incompetence.

We have miserably failed as a nation.

And a shiat-ton more medicine, better medical technology, theoretically more testing capacity, more land space (ie lower population density) and much more wealth.

Yep, I'll agree Iran is a bit of a COVID basket case but what does that say about the US that the US is running comparable deaths?

Australia has a shiat-ton less per capita, also less population density admittedly. Japan has a shait-ton less deaths per capita and much higher population density.

There's an explanation for why the US COVID stats are as farked as they are, it's Trump and Trumpers doing what they perceive he tells them to do.

But universal health care is socialism!  Any country with universal health care is on the verge of collapse!

Here's an idea:  The government provides healthcare and education.  The government provides our capitalistic system with a healthy and educated workforce.  Capitalist make money using the healthy and educated workforce.

I don't disagree, but the OP was deaths per time, not deaths per capita over time.

Besides you're 1.5x higher on deaths per capita overall, so while it isn't as bigger difference, the USA is still worse than Iran and that's a pretty low bar too.

Good call. 1 out of every 1421 Americans has died from Covid-19 related causes.  1 out of every 2479 Iranians has died from Covid-19 related causes. Americans are dying at nearly twice the rate per million, this despite Iran having less than 1/8 our GDP per capita, and spending less than 1/21 the amount on healthcare per capita.

Please, tell me more about how it's bad here because we have more people, and not because our leadership is completely inept and derelict in their constitutional duty to promote the general welfare and provide for the common defense.

Average across the whole country.

(24 * 60 * 239) / 225,000 = 1.54 minutes between each death.

24 hours in a day, 60 minutes per hour, 239 days elapsed since March 1 2020 all over the 225,000 total deaths.

It reeks of facts. Sadly, for many idiots, it turns out facts skew left-leaning which can be perceived as 'agenda'.

The new Borat film did it great. It features Borat in disguise singing to anti-COVID protesters. He starts out by bagging Democrats (lock them up) then journalists (chop them up like the Saudis do) and finishes up by asking "what are we going to do with scientists"?

Those darn scientists and their fact-based agenda.

There are two things worse than gross incompetence:

1) a personality disorder that makes a president not care about reality
2) a KGB mole who was "helped" into office to destroy a country from the inside.

We've got both.

I didn't even draw the correlation between the increased deaths and the fact that the difference between this years and last years number is nearly exactly the same number as reported covid deaths.

So 230,000 extra people died for what? They were murdered for covid money? Get the fark out of here. Unless my sarcasm meter is broken...
