COVID-19 has now killed more Americans than:

  • The American Revolution
  • The Battle of Gettysburg
  • The attack on Pearl Harbor
  • D-Day
  • The Korean War
  • The Vietnam War
  • 9/11
  • The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan

*** Combined ***

The above was tweeted here and a discussion ensued on the LIM WhatsApp chat which included the following clarifications-

Revolution: 6.8K Gettysburg 23K-28K 2, pearl harbor 2.4K, d-day 3K, korea 34K, vietnam 58K, 9/11 3K, Iraq/Afghanistan 4.4K+2.3K.

WW2 totals 405K Americans dead, and 600K in Civil War, so they just picked the battles for those.

Either way the US numbers for Covid-19 are shameful.
