are you discussing single payer, or universal health care?

Because you can have universal health care without single payer. Germany has UHC but doesn't have single payer and they are handling things well.

One thing to consider is that coronavirus tends to hit the elderly hardest, and pretty much everyone over age 65 is covered by medicare which is a single payer health care system. So its hard to tell in some ways, since many hospitalizations occur among people who are covered by a US single payer system.
