CORONAVIRUS : I made this from publicly available data, since no one else bothered to do a simple mortality calculation in the US apparently.

How do you explain Italy with a similar infection to mortality rate at the moment to the US? It has universal health care. If anything, the known infections are actually higher in the US because people will not seek health care, meaning infection to mortality is actually lower. Again, I want universal health care sooooo badly in the US....I just don’t think there is necessarily a correlation with that and mortality rates right now in the US. For one, those hit the hardest are the elderly and they have universal healthcare through Medicare and Medicaid...I would say, yes there will be a correlation to infection rates and debt in US citizens....but I’m not convinced not having universal healthcare is effecting mortality rates as significantly as is being implied.
