Yes it does sound a lot when you put it like that Mags...
However; Based on those figures there is less than 3% of those infected actually dying.

And:- Unless everyone in America had been tested those figures could be wildly short of the mark, with perhaps three or four times as many people infected but not tested and therefore not included in the list.

This would make the percentage of deaths less than 1%...
This does sound like an assumption on my part, but figures relating to deaths would be reasonably accurate, whereas, you can only guess how many people are infected if you don't test everyone...

And why do they express it as 'Cases per million' instead of a percentage?
For best effect I'm betting...

Interesting that the UK figures are 394,257 which comes out at just over 1%....for the percentage of deaths...

I think your maths is a bit out I work it out as 10%

41777/394257*100=10.6%
