True. But the Indian sub-continent clearly indicates huge differences to European rates. Didn't Japan have an outbreak which killed close to 1 million too? It's orders of magnitude out from, say, the 5,000 dead in Britain for an outbreak in the late 19th century. Or even the 100k in Prussia for a mid-19th century outbreak. Russia was 500k for one outbreak wasn't it?
Most of Europe got off very, very lightly (relatively) as the pandemics headed west it seems.
