"When we look at comparable countries, the variation is extremely large. At one end we have the world's most successful country, Taiwan, with 0.3 deaths per 1 million and at the other end a number of states in the United States where there are more than 1,000 dead per million.
Worst of all is the situation in New Jersey and the state of New York with over 1,600 deaths per 1 million population. So the mortality rate has been more than 5,000 times as high as in Taiwan, despite the fact that the United States had about three extra months to prepare for the epidemic. "

A question about clarification: is that per million of the general population, or per one million people infected by Covid-19?

Some comic strips seem quarantines anyway. They rarely venture far from their usual settings.

Technically, a quarantine against Covid-19 should last 14 days or so. Billions of people have been all but quarantined for more than 3 and a half months. That's too long! smiley - cross

Not that I have a solution. smiley - sadface

Caiman raptor elk - Yes, but what if the box is REALLY big?

True. Quarante is 14 in French. But I wouldn't count on that.
