The death toll from the CCP Virus in the United States has topped 10,000.
Data from Johns Hopkins University shows that more than 10,900 American people died of the CCP Virus as of early Tuesday, while the number of confirmed cases exceeded 368,000.
In comparison, USA Today wrote that the number of soldiers that died in six of America’s wars on the battlefield totaled—9,961—American Revolution, battle deaths 4,435; the War of 1812, battle deaths 2,260; Mexican War—battle deaths 1,733 and other deaths (in theater 11,550); Indian Wars, battle deaths 1,000; Spanish American War, battle deaths 385, (non-theater 2,061); and Desert Shield/Desert Storm, battle deaths 148, in theater, 235 and non-theater, 1,565). But to be really accurate many servicemen and women also died as a result of their wounds in the conflict but perhaps not right where they were injured and this total is 15,411. So the total number of servicemen and women that died in these six conflicts is actually 25,372.
So while the initial number of 9,961 from six wars Americans fought in, making the death toll from the CCP Virus sound very grim indeed we are far from the actual total of deaths from these six armed conflicts.
President Donald Trump last weekend said that this week could be a “toughest week” for the United States.
Surgeon General Jerome Adams also warned on Sunday that this week could be “the hardest and saddest” time of most Americans’ lives.
“This is going to be our Pearl Harbor moment, our 9/11 moment, only it’s not going to be localized,” Adams said.
Dr. Deborah Birx, the coordinator of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, also said on Sunday that a new model projected “close to that 100,000 number” of U.S. coronavirus deaths.
Birx urged Americans to seek shelter and stay home, saying, “This is the moment to not be going to the grocery store, not going to the pharmacy, but doing everything you can to keep your family and your friends safe.”
Globally, more than 1.3 million people have been infected by the CCP Virus and over 74,000 of them have died since the virus emerged in Wuhan, China, in December 2019.
