In the Rose Garden this Monday, President Trump talked about testing, beside banners spelling out the line of the day.
Have we tested more than any other country? It depends on how that's measured. In raw numbers, no nation has tested more, according to Worldometer -- the U.S. has conducted 9,705,424 coronavirus tests.
But we've managed to test a much lower percentage of our population than many other nations. Some are much smaller nations, but others, while not as populous as America, are quite large.
On the scale of tests per million people, the U.S. has tested 29,321. Here's a complete of all the nations that have done better, along with their ratios of tests per million:
Faeroe Islands: 172,932 tests per million
United Arab Emirates: 121,330
Falkland Islands: 115,517
San Marino: 87,973
Cayman Islands: 63,708
Isle of Man: 44,371
New Zealand: 40,270
Channel Islands: 30,725
Maybe it's not appropriate to compare the U.S. to tiny countries like San Marino or the Faeroe Islands -- but it's perfectly appropriate to compare us to Iceland, Denmark, Israel, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Germany, Canada, and other developed countries that are testing a greater (in some cases far greater) percentage of their citizens. No, we don't lead the world in testing.
