CLAIM: “This virus has impacted almost every country. But there’s a reason it has hit America worse than any other advanced nation. It’s because of [President Donald] Trump’s failure to take it seriously from the start.”

VERDICT: MISLEADING
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden’s vice-presidential pick, alleged Wednesday that the coronavirus had plagued the United States more than any other developed country.

In sheer numbers, the United States has more confirmed infections and deaths than any other country. The U.S. also has the third-largest population in the world, more than any other developed country.

Per capita, America has reported more cases than nearly all developed nations (except Chile), a tally by the Worldometer showed on Wednesday evening.

However, there are several other advanced nations — including the United Kingdom, Belgium, Spain, Italy, and Sweden — with a higher death rate per 100,000 residents, data maintained by Johns Hopkins University revealed, echoing the Worldometer figures.

The data showed that COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) is more widespread but less deadly in the U.S. than in the developed countries with a higher per capita death rate. Compared to those other countries, more people are contracting the virus without dying in the United States.
