Heard on @WBEZ / @NPR this morning, re U.S. crossing 5 million cases:

"To put that in perspective, Brazil has 3 million and India has 2 million."

Aaaaaargh. No, sigh, that puts nothing in perspective. Dear journalists: *only per-capita statistics matter*.

When you’ve gone so far past the top that you’ve lost sight of the top you might be in a wee bit of trouble.  Those journalists need to take a stats class.
