Fair point, you might well be correct, although I would also note that in the last 6 days the 7-day moving average death rate for Germany has increased by 33%.
The thing is, from a public health standpoint, this is not a competition between nations. Every person who gets this disease, young and old, is at risk of either dying or suffering lifelong disability. And even if they have what is called a mild case they will, on average, infect about 3-5 or more other people without intervention.
In my metropolitin area, after this thing has been going for a long time, the health department just sent out a contract for contact tracers. This is outrageous and directly linked not only to inaction at my state level but also the obvious lack of leadership, funding and direction at the national level.
In other words we need to stop looking for some kind of comfort in how others are doing and get to work beating this down in the US. We are failing miserably. There is no silver lining except in the places where they have made hard choices and shut things down. The very idea that the president would have a mass event is staggering. It is little short of murder.
It is fair to say that not only is their zero effective leadership coming from Washington, the message from there is contributing to this massive death toll. Trump is killing people to try to be reelected. And that is what history will record.
