One Percent Of One Percent

I am having trouble expressing these in Russian. Here are some examples.

1. In California, there are 700 people testing positive for coronavirus, but one percent of California's population is 400,000, and one percent of one percent equals 4000, so the infection rate here is presently under two-tenths of one percent of one percent.
2. In America, the top one percent has at least $10 million, and the top one percent of the top one percent has at least $110 million. Billionares are among the top one percent of the top one percent of the top one percent.

Как сказать по-русски?

    One percent of one percent - один процент от одного процента.
    One percent of one percent of one percent - один процент от одного процента от одного процента.

    Of course, it looks and sounds clumsy, better say 0.01% or 0.0001% (одна сотая, одна десятитысячная процента) or (intext) 10^-4%.
