I did - it's interesting, but only skips over issues outside of Scandinavia. I don't think it's that helpful as a world view, because they make some assumptions about places like NZ & Aussie and never even mention Hawaii.

Yeah, I know about that one - the country where 18% of all those killed by Covid were Members of Parliament.

But quite a few African countries are making efforts and have stats as reliable as USA and more reliable than lots of South American countries, so I'm not going to tar the rest for a couple of bad apples, to mix a few metaphors!
