On August 17, Germany (population 80 million) had 2900 new cases and 11 new deaths. Meanwhile, Indiana (population less than 7 million) had 840 new positive results and 16 new deaths. Hmmm, something about those statistics suggests there might be a bit more testing going on in Germany than here in Indiana.
For a more local perspective, Vanderburgh County (pop. 181,000) had 22 cases and 1 death while China (pop 1.6 billion) had 54 new cases and 2 new deaths.
