Comparing cases per milion population USA and France are on an equal footing, rising in both countries but not as high as Spain or UK with UK numbers (Hospital admissions, Ventilated patients and cases) beginning to climb again. Deaths per million are highest in USA with UK just behind. By pretty much all metrics UK is doing worse than any other comparable country except perhaps USA. By that reckoning USA should advise against travel to USA? (and UK)

France’s vaccination rate is still slightly behind UK but they are not far off although they have fewer fully vaccinated and more partially vaccinated. The difference is 3%. Almost everywhere rolled out their vaccinations slower than UK because of availability. That situation has changed and UK is no longer the outlier with some countries having better vaccination rates than UK. Canada, Spain and Ireland for instance.

Lets be honest, no country has eliminated it, cases and other metrics are rising pretty much everywhere despite the vaccinations and the two worst performing countries are USA and UK.

The better news is that the deaths, hospitalisations, ventilatted patients numbers are fewer than they were for similar case numbers in the past. Vaccinations appear to be the main reason for this. However it remains a huge concern with the world awaiting a further variant. The end is nowhere near in view imho.
