How do you define “success” in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic?
Donald Trump says he and his administration are doing a “great job.” He gives himself an A+ grade in the response to the pandemic.
Hmm. Let’s look at a couple of numbers.
The worldwide death count has just surpassed 1 million human beings. Of that total, more than 200,000 of them died in the United States of America.
The United States comprises about 5 percent of the world population. The U.S. portion of the worldwide coronavirus death toll is, um, 20 percent.
Five percent vs. 20 percent. That’s a successful strategy?
I do not believe that is the case.
