Data: COVID-19 death rate in United States far lower than much of Europe

The death rate from the novel coronavirus in the United States is far lower than much of the European continent, with the U.S. exceeding many countries in Europe with a stronger performance to prevent deaths.

According to Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center mortality data, the United States has performed stronger to prevent COVID-19 deaths (e.g. a smaller "observed case-fatality ratio") than all the European nations of the United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, France, Sweden, Netherlands and Belgium.

Also in the data from Johns Hopkins, the United States has fewer deaths per capita than those European countries, and the U.S. deaths-per-100,000 population is much lower.
