I am sure the US has likely surpassed the UK long ago tbh, We have numerous GOP states that have been altering the Data and altering cause of deaths for months now. If you remember, I posted on this a while back here, Florida governor prevented the Medical examiner from releasing the data to the public, instead they had to send it to them, then they decided to pick and choose themselves which deaths were ruled COVD deaths or not and were removing strokes, heart attacks and other causes EVEN though they tested positive for COVID-19, when we already knew that COVID-19 could cause the blood clots to cause the strokes and heart attacks. On top of that the person who actually created the COVID tracking website said they were trying to get her to manipulate the data even then. Alabama was verified to be doing the same. Apparently Trump really liked that idea and ordered Hospitals to stop sending their data to the CDC but instead to send it to the HHS Trump appointee who was recently reported as manipulating CDC guidelines and data as well as pressuring Fauci and others in an attempt to muzzle them and filter what they were allowed to discuss publicly. In addition to that, we have had districts refusing to release their data at all afraid that it would " panic the locals" so there really is no telling how many GOP local and State officials that are playing that same game right now with the election nearing. We will not know for some time how many deaths we actually have here due to this and it will necessarily take years of extensive investigation to actually determine this once Trump is no longer in control over what is reported or released. Many of the GOP politicians here do not want data released that contradicts their reopening plans so are actively preventing that data from becoming public right now.I thought it would never happen, but it is poised to.
The USA is shortly to overtake the UK on officially recorded covid-19 deaths per head population - bearing in mind, of course, the two countries have different ways of recording covid-19 deaths, so direct comparisons must be taken with caution. This is largely because the UK (amidst the many, many ways it has handled covid-19 badly) was recording the deaths incorrectly, such that it had to make a major correction about a month ago and remove thousands of deaths from its covid-19 tally.
I might point out that the UK, by nationally recorded covid-19 deaths, is only behind Spain and Belgium of (significant) European countries. However, other measures (e.g. the indirect method of excess deaths in the period) suggest it may have suffered worst. This may make sense, as for instance Belgium's official definition of a covid-19 death is known to be particularly liberal.
We have a parade of people now telling us this is happening at this point.
When the medical examiners’ list was available, it showed more deaths than the state’s count.
Florida’s COVID-19 cases continue to surge, making it one of the new hotspots in the country. In testimony to Congress this week, Dr. Anthony Fauci said…
As large parts of the U.S. ease their lockdowns against the coronavirus, public health officials in some states are being accused of bungling infection numbers or even deliberately using a little sleight of hand to make things look better than they are.
Hospitals have been ordered to bypass the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and send all patient information to a central database in Washington, raising questions about transparency.
The government’s disease-fighting agency is conflating viral and antibody tests, compromising a few crucial metrics that governors depend on to reopen their economies. Pennsylvania, Georgia, Texas, and other states are doing the same.
Something is way off in the state's official count of coronavirus statistics. Someone is altering data in ways that minimize spikes in cases.
