It took 4 years of intense combat to kill 407k Americans in WW2. It took COVID-19 and mismanagement by the Trump administration only one to reach 400k+ deaths : worldnews
This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 85%. (I’m a bot)
The number of confirmed Covid-19 deaths in the United States has now surpassed 400,000, and that devastating toll is set to grow in the coming weeks with the US still averaging more than 3,300 deaths every single day.
In just the 11 months since the country’s first confirmed death from Covid-19, the disease has killed as many Americans as US soldiers who died during four years of World War II. That figure is also almost surely an undercount.
The US has by far the most confirmed Covid-19 deaths in the world and nearly doubles the toll in Brazil, the second-hardest-hit country.
