There seems to be lots of discussion on here about the number of cases of Covid-19 and the amount of, or lack of testing. To me, the only important number is how many people die per million residents of a country, city, etc.
I did a bit of quick math, and Italy is up to 137 deaths per million people, and still rising quickly. Then Spain at 93, and Iran at 27. Way down the list is the US with 3.9 and Canada at exactly 1. You can easily do the math to calculate numbers for a state or a city.
