Out of 1 million deaths globally, 1 in 5 were American.

Out of every 1,600 Americans who were alive at the beginning of the year, one has since died of COVID-19. Now that the virus has spread through the White House and the death toll continues to rise, it's clear that the pandemic is not slowing down.
The United States is suffering in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. The global death toll has now surpassed 1 million, but nearly 3 in 10 global deaths occurred in the US. That is over 20%.
In other words, two out of every 50 people in the world are American, but 10 out of every 50 deaths have been American. Moreover, two-thirds of states have made up a higher percentage of the global death toll than they do the global population.
While death rates in the US have slowed, more than 700 people are still dying each day. Cases continue to rise in 23 states, with spikes across less populated areas in the Midwest and US heartland.
Where is our plan? When will the U.S. step up as a world leader and contain the virus?
