COVID-19 has now killed more Americans than:
- The American Revolution
- The Battle of Gettysburg
- The attack on Pearl Harbor
- The Korean War
- The Vietnam War
- 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.
