Deaths per capita from COVID-19 are more informative than confirmed cases

The rate of testing for COVID-19 is variable everywhere. As such, using the number of confirmed cases over time is not a reliable method for tracking the spread of the disease. We should be using deaths per capita First of all, we should be using per capita statistics. For example, 100,000 cases in China vs 100,000 cases in Ireland would be very different things, because of what they imply for concentration of cases.
