Been struggling to get my head CV-19 deaths given onslaught of daily stats reported.
From Our World In Data
site for US (ref thru 2017):
Avg daily deaths (all causes): 7,565
Avg yearly deaths: 2,761,225
US Population: 325.1M
So, 0.85% die yearly in US from all causes.
Today, US CV-19 deaths are 144,283, or 5.2% of normal and 0.04% of population ... so far.
It does seem that somehow we went from flattening-the-curve to stomping-out-the-virus.
Anyway, these numbers help me provide some context, especially after the horrible images from NYC and Italy this past March/April.
Thought I'd share.
