A patient in Santa Clara County, California, died at home of COVID-19 on February 6, 2020– now the first known death in the US from SARS-COV-2: Washington Post. And no, the US doesn’t have one of the lowest death rates.

Reported by the Washington Post on April 22.  The death only came to light now because tissue samples from the autopsy were sent to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for analysis by the county medical examiner and analyzed for the new virus.  A second patient who died February 17 was similarly analyzed and announced at the same time.

[redacted] and Dr. Deborah Birx also claimed that the US has one of the lowest death rates from the virus in the world– a patently false claim.  According to the Post, the US has a higher rate than 101 other countries.
