12. Focus on the countries that have the best testing per capita and that

are demographically diverse. The more ubiquity of testing the more quality the reported case mortality rate. Do not mix stats between countries or average out percentages with equal weighting. 3+% mortality in the US where 5 people are tested per one million is not comparable to South Korea's 0.8% mortality where 3700 people are tested per one million. Finally a fatality is harder to miss versus confirming cases so early reports are more likely to be biased toward reporting higher mortality than what is actually the case.
