Tool / A Perfect Circle / Puscifer frontman Maynard James Keenan has revealed in a new interview that he recently contracted COVID-19. Though he beat the disease, the singer is still “dealing with the residual side effects,” including lung damage.
Johns Hopkins currently lists the mortality rate of COVID-19 in the United States at 2.8 percent, though the number could be lower considering not everyone infected has been tested. The highest observed COVID mortality rate is in Mexico — 10.3 percent — while the highest per-capita death rate has occurred in Peru, with 103.19 people dying from COVID-19 per 100,000 of the total population. The United States currently has the sixth-highest per-capita death rate in the world.
