    By looking at "just numbers" you may be fooled.
    It's safe to assume that with China's population being 4 times larger than America's (and being crammed together in densely populated areas the way they are) that they should have AT LEAST double our numbers and maybe Up To 4 Times as many cases as the U.S. But as we know, the Chi-Comms have lied to the world and their inaction and cover-ups have devastated the global community.

    You also have to look for that "selective journalism" from the MSM.
    For Example: Take these two CNN stories, one says that "We have the highest number of deaths in the world", the other article States "U.S. doing far fewer tests than any other country".
    Let's take a look at these....

    Why the US has the world's highest number of Covid-19 deaths - CNN
    The US now has the world's highest number of deaths from Covid-19, with at least 21,692 losing their lives to the virus as of Sunday afternoon. Americans will continue to die in large numbers until our country mounts a coherent response to the epidemic. President Donald Trump has failed. The US still lacks even a basic plan for controlling the epidemic and restarting the economy. - Notice that they use "actual number of deaths" to give the appearance that it is deadlier here in America than anywhere else in the world.

    Now the "flip-side":
    Trump says more than 2 million coronavirus tests have been done in the US, and claims mass testing not needed - CNNPolitics
    The President has been celebrating the growing number of coronavirus tests conducted in the US as a victory since the US surpassed South Korea last month as the country with the highest number of tests administered. However, compared to South Korea, the US has conducted far fewer tests per capita given the US population is more than six times larger than South Korea's. - Notice that they use "Per capita numbers" in this article to make it seem like the U.S. is lagging behind the rest of the world in testing.


    So, if we use "per capita" for number of deaths, Guess What!?!? We no longer have the "highest number of deaths from covid".......weird huh?
    If we use "Actual Number of tests"..........Guess What..!? Holy Shit, now we have the "highest number of tests conducted in the world". Weird Right?
    Also, notice their Dislike for Our President in each article.

    The media has been a HUUUUUGE problem when it comes to misinformation, and fear-mongering, and outright lies.

    43 days after confirming its first coronavirus case, Florida nears grim milestones
    At the state’s current pace, it will pass 20,000 cases and 500 deaths today. Some perspective: Six weeks ago, Florida announced its first two cases. Three weeks ago, it hit 1,000 cases. Now, we learn of 1,000 new diagnoses — and sometimes more — every day.


    And those are just the cases that we know of. Because of limited testing, we don’t truly know how many people have been infected.


    Over the weekend, Kathleen McGrory and Rebecca Woolington reported a discrepancy in the state’s accounting of fatalities. They found that the health department’s tally was about 10 percent lower than the medical examiners’ tally. The reason: The health department counts only permanent Florida residents, leaving out snowbirds and visitors; the medical examiners count anyone who has died in Florida.

    China Failed the entire world. But does that really surprise anyone?
    Since it is now believed that the initial outbreak took place in October or earlier shouldn't that have been one, two or three months not weeks?

    If we only had someone from the US in China CDC to monitor and report back at that time! Right Trump Administration fired that person!

    Several months before the coronavirus pandemic began, the Trump administration eliminated a key American public health position in Beijing intended to help detect disease outbreaks in China, Reuters has learned.

    Which numbers? The ones the liberal news keeps quoting which is total cases? At first they compared the US to Italy saying that the total number of US cases had passed that of Italy by a couple of thousand without mentioning that the US has nearly 5.26 times as many citizens and 33 times the land mass. Italy compares closer to California. When viewed as a percent of population, the US ranks as one of the countries with the lowest infection rate.

    How do you consider any of this "mis-information"? It is all true, just because they use different metrics doesn't make it untrue. They are, after all two different stories. And, they aren't opinion pieces, they are news. You really seem to get these two things mixed up.
