Hospital Beds, Physicians, and Infant Mortality Per 1000 Population in OECD Countries
I thought this was interesting.
I would imagine the national average for the US is subject to some significant regional variation.
Interesting that the US exceeds Canada by a bit in both. No wonder there is often a queue for doctors and facilities there according to people with whom I have spoken. The US manages that by deprivation. I wonder if the wealthy can buy extra-systemic, first class care in Harper's world?
One might be tempted to surmise that unless one is wealthy, connected, or exceptionally well-insured, in the event of a serious epidemic a person might end up in a makeshift quarantine facility, and not a hospital bed in order to manage costs.
To each as they deserve. Welcome to Camp Hospice. And may the odds be ever in your favour.
The trend for the US over time is in blue.
