1) IT/ES/FR/DE are higher risk, with IT highest risk 2) CN/KR/CL are lower risk 3) US/CA have medium risk
3/N: F2 shows % national confirmed cases by high-risk age groups
Testing regimes affects # & distribution of cases, especially in initial phases; with that caveat: F2 is consistent with lower current CFRs in CN/KR/DE & higher in IT/ES/FR. CFRs in US/CA/CL still evolving....
Just published article in @CCPA Monitor (ed.@StuJT) analyzing #inequality & low public investment as drivers behind #Chile’s protests calling for economic justice, and how such calls could signal a break in 40-year increase in inequality there & elsewhere
