Covid-19 Most Effected Countries

Some good news on Covid-19.  The aggressive social distancing seems to be flattening the curve of new cases as shown in the graph above and the link below from John Hopkins. The USA is the top line with by far the most cases. The other nine countries adopted social distancing and shelter in place policies sooner than the USA and have much flatter curves.

The graph above shows the ten most affected countries. The link also shows graphs for each nation. 

The bad news for the USA is that our curve only recently began flattening. We did an inept job as a nation, with individual cities and counties and States all deciding on their own when to start social distancing.  Our number of cases and deaths would have been far lower if we as a nation had acted sooner.
