I'm not super sure you can rely on US numbers in the same way as for countries with a national health service (and a functional government)

I don't think you can rely on any country's numbers. They are too easy to massage.

The only tolerably accurate measure is to compare the total number of deaths from all causes now with the same numbers from last year, because it's very hard to fiddle that.
