BREAKING: The U.S. death toll from COVID-19 tops 500,000, a staggering total that nearly equals the number of Americans killed in World War II, Korea and Vietnam combined.

The COVID-19 death toll in the U.S. topped 500,000 Monday, all but matching the number of Americans killed in World War II, Korea and Vietnam combined.The lives lost, as recorded by Johns Hopkins University, are about equal to the population of Kansas City, Missouri, and greater than that of Miami; Raleigh, North Carolina; or Omaha, Nebraska.
And despite the rollout of vaccines since mid-December, a closely watched model from the University of Washington projects more than 589,000 dead by June 1.The U.S. toll is by far the highest reported in the world, accounting for 20 percent of the nearly 2.5 million coronavirus deaths globally, though the true numbers are thought to be significantly greater, in part because of the many cases that were overlooked, especially early in the outbreak.
ADVERTISEMENTAverage daily deaths and cases have plummeted in the past few weeks. Virus deaths have fallen from more than 4,000 reported on some days in January to an average of fewer than 1,900 per day. But experts warn that dangerous variants could cause the trend to reverse itself. headtopics.com
Some experts say not enough Americans have been inoculated yet for the vaccine to be making much of a difference.Instead, the drop-off in deaths and cases has been attributed to the passing of the holidays; the cold and bleak days of midwinter, when many people are inclined to stay home; and better adherence to mask rules and social distancing.
The first known deaths from the virus in the U.S. happened in early February 2020. It took four months to reach the first 100,000 dead. The toll hit 200,000 deaths in September and 300,000 in December. Then it took just over a month to go from 300,000 to 400,000 and about two months to climb from 400,000 to the brink of 500,000.
The U.S. recorded an estimated 405,000 deaths in World War II, 58,000 in the Vietnam War and 36,000 in the Korean War. Read more: The Associated Press »

Okay, this is absurd. Not tryin to downplay the pandemic or those lost but seriously🤦♂️.. A) lots more people involved in the covid 'war' vs WWII. B) 500K = 0.15% of the US pop. The 291K Americans who died during WWII = 4.6% of the ENTIRE active Armed Forces in 1945. Facts. 🤫 WOODTV Bullogny. BretBaier Johns Hopkins can ONLY estimate of deaths. Computer model. Hospitals all over US do NOT submit a report to Johns Hopkins when each death occurs! Not ALL 'covid deaths' are because of virus. When is your reporting going to be accurate on Johns Hopkins?🤔
ℹ︎ These claims are disputed. And 20 percent of that number has come from CHINA JOES watch!! Thanks, Trump. TrumpFailedAmerica What’s worse is if we had listened to Republicans, that number would’ve been much higher. I think If News Org's did some research they death toll is probably 1 million Check the deaths from 2019 and the deaths in 2020
Trump bears mostly the responsibility of creating this crisis by fighting scientific community about the virus playing blame games China Virus Flu No need masks even to the extent of infected WH himself The hospitalization things Stone Heart who want gains on public lives kingzeek_ Sheeeshhh 😓 It’s the American Disease....China, NZ, etc got rid of there COVID
Yeah but what about all those pre existing conditions ? /s Watch “FALL OF THE CABAL “. TIME TO WAKE UP! There are over 500,000 deaths of aborted babies in the USA each year! 😢😢😢 Is that bernie? Its going to get worse and Trump supporters are going to deny it all the way to the ICU. Looks like we found a replacement for war. Instead of 'selective service' we have 'required immunizations'
There are 330 million people in the U.S. 3.1 million died last year from all causes. The AP story is meaningless. How many British soldiers died in World War I compared to deaths from Covid? How many died from the Spanish flu compared to Covid? What is APs point? Scare you? Why are you scaring people Trump is responsible for at least 400,000 of those deaths because of telling people it was nothing and don't social distance,and don't wear masks. They need to bring him up on negligent homicide charges. Screw the tax evasion stuff.
And less people care than ever. Is that good? President Bidens responsibility is to the slow the spread which he has already done, stamp out the mutants which GOP governors are fighting & POTUS may have to issue mandates. And he has to get America vaccinated. There have been stumbles, but we have progress. TrumpVirus
Per earlier AP reports, that ie +100,000 since Biden’s Inauguration: 20-% of All COVID Dearhs and adding average of 3,000 per day (more than died on 9/11 or at Pearl Harbor) RIP. God bless the families and loved ones. Let us never forget that China killed over 500,000 Americans without firing a single gunshot or tactile nuclear weapon.🇺🇸🙏❤
BretBaier Do we have figures of how many died just from the flu or just heart disease or just cancer or just diabetes ...? Thanks Trump and all your enablers. And half of America will say it was fake news. I am whistle blower not caller I glad now Bill Horn aka William Horn can't call now he federal jail he's indicted ask lawyer
I would like to super-retweet your tweet...oh!!! just did!!! And then I’ll retweet my tweet!!! And it passes along and passes along and passes along… Yet we still have people who think the world is conspiring against them when they asked to where a mask of any type and refuse to get vaccinated. There are just those kind of people in the world. Crippled by fear and paranoia.
That is what happens when you are attacked and the Commander in Chief refuses to acknowledge the attack. im getting my second dosage tomorrow....... is that bernie It's a horrifying milestone and when this is 'over', I think we will all then be able to digest all this loss- and it's not gonna be pretty Oh wow not even 1% of the worlds population. The plague was worse and that's life. Shit happens,it sucks,but it moves on.
What a big failure of Donald Trump... underestimate Covid19. 🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️ Rip Really! Sad TeeTweetsHere Most of which were preventable. But you didn’t wanna wear a mask. Does it outnumber abortions? USA! USA! USA! BretBaier Correction: Death toll with Covid, Not from Covid BretBaier How many were from just plain old Flu?
Omg 🙏 Lock them up What is the real number? 30000, 40000 ? Why would Joe Biden do this? The Republican party/McConnell are also responsible/guilty of criminal negligence/genocide. They supported/allowed trump to do nothing. The Democratics must aggressively hammer them on this and prosecute them. Procedures to remove a criminal incompetent president be modernized/improved. 3 months is too long while Americans are suffering/dying. This is the underlying issue with the 500,000 virus dead. Trump is guilty of criminal negligence/willful genocide. He must be prosecuted
WOODTV Hopefully these numbers impact all of those thinking this is a “hoax” ! It’s real and people are dying! 1 life lost is 1 too many! dellcam I think it's all Americans killed in all wars, but maybe I'm wrong. Trump's legacy. :-( BretBaier Car wrecks heart attacks flu pneumonia gunshots etc all COVID-19 related.
BLAME POTUS45 FOR THE DEATHS. Trump admitted to realBobWoodward for the record that he knew the coronavirus was lethal & pandemic. ⬇️ Trump did nothing to protect the country because his re-election was coming. Trump's re-election was more important. GOP DNC Thats 166 9/11s and 125,000 Benghazis. I want to see 13 hour testimonies and people go to jail for this negligence.
'from' or 'with'? jankrav Being that we have all the best resources, it never should've been this way. 😪🙏🕊 My heart goes out to all that have lost loved ones And still some people deny it is real . . . but then maybe those are the same people who don't think the wars happened, think that the election wasn't fair, and still think the earth is flat
BREAKING: PEDOPHILIA IS BEING NORMALIZED AS WE SPEAK *Not to be considered as fact* Cigarettes kill around 480k people a year and yet that’s not a big deal? 25% of that is on Biden. We will never forget that the other guy lied to us politicize wearing masks and peddled his election fraud lies instead of tackling this deadly virus
And it could have been a fraction of that number. Had we acted quickly, had we masked up, and had we had a real leader, we would not be the country that killed many more people than any other country. Well, the Flu and many other conditions have all but disappeared so that’s the silver lining, huh? BretBaier Still less than the number of abortions every single year🤷♂️
👇🏻 My deepest condolences to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones to this virus. Sending prayers, love and light your way. 😔 BretBaier Magically somehow nobody has died of influenza in a year and heart disease deaths r down 43% - miracle? COVID-19 is not the cause of many cases. You know the real death toll is skewed. With all the lies coming out of Florida and Texas and any other state calling Covid-19 a hoax. 🙄💔🇺🇸
Sadly the “patriots” don’t care. Maybe if we had call it “Al-Coveed” they would care matteroffacttv and how many from Domestic Violence in the same period? Every death is tragic but this data should be looked at in the context of how many of these people would have died from another cause at or around the same time if there was no COVID. Look at the difference in all-cause death to compare a virus to war.
Gosh... if someone had just encouraged people to mask up and not hold rallies... who could have done that BretBaier But less than the Spanish Flu, when the population was 1/3rd of what it is now. 'It will just go away, like a miracle. I hope.' - Donald 'worst president in history' Trump.. BretBaier I thought Biden has a plan
Thanks Trump! BretBaier Except of course that all of those war deaths were ACTUALLY CAUSED BY WAR.... hugolowell thanks Trump 4 years after Trump. Just sayin. If those wars were fought by soldiers over the age of 80 with pre existing conditions. Not quite apples to apples. More like apples to really really old and diseased apples.
Recently my friend's baby was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia & needs a stem cell transplant. Jason & his wife are first-time parents caring for a sick baby & could use some help. If you are in a place to donate or share, it would be appreciated. Let's discuss the skyrocketing suicide rates among people, especially CHILDREN!... ps. The vast majority of those 500k died with other health issues involved. No different than the flu or pneumonia. Stop driving false narratives
Remember when Mike_Pence wrote that op ed like there is no second wave? ' Covid-denying is alive and well, judging by the replies here. ' As well as an appalling lack of compassion. Quite an assemblage of hideous humans. Yes it no doubt is and due to the illegal Human DNA altering mRNA 'Vaccine' Experiments being carried out on them? These ARE NOT 'Vaccines' and there is NO 'Informed Consent', as defined by the 1947 'Nuremberg Code' because NO ONE KNOWS what will happen to the Lab Rats.
Thanks trump! Trump was Murderer in Chief. jnehlich For context... That is 10 Yankee stadiums. The top 25 hedge fund CEOs made $32 billion last year discouraging pandemic suppression so they could make a killing concentrating wealth with disaster capitalism.

Compare Covid-19 with smoking tobacco, or the money of those tobacco companies is enough to not talk about this?

Daily death rate 118,000 now 130,000 Babies painfully-preventably dying. 40 MILLION MORE Babies will die by next New Year’s Celebration. Staggering-Sobering-For World Survival-AbolishAbortion Thanks to trump and his supporters incapacity to respond effectively .
500,000 didn’t die from Covid. But the narrative and story is interesting. Biden’s America. SMH 😢😢😢😭😭😭💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔 Thank you China. May your country crumble and fall. But let's compare it the flu....dumb asses. 🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️ Perhaps this is what Donald meant by “winning” (and if so, he’s right - we’re all so tired of all the “winning”)
They should send the numbers to the ex president 😡 Teacher_bot2000 😢😢😢🇨🇦 Can’t shoot your way out of Covid. India with a population of more than a billion people only has 150k deaths. Smh Wait, is that before or after the underreported NYS Nursing Home deaths? 🤔 Let this sink in ... to all the people who have told me “well they were going to die anyway” ... CoronavirusPandemic coronavirus MasksSaveLives WearAMask
I've got a story for you about an Illinois resident whose been running fundraising scams for 2 years raking in over $20,000.00 all while posing as a resistor on twitter. He's faked everything from stage 4 cancer to Covid. Give me the staggering survival to death percentage!! Pleaseeeeee Trump did this.cant understand why anyone would want to follow a corrupt man like his m .He cared nothing about Americans dieing.Just wanted to be elected to stay out of legal troubles like he's in now.
If it was really a threat, all international travel would stop. Countries close their borders to everything but food n water n medical supplies...no humans allowed to cross... nadabakos 1. Heart disease Number of deaths per year: 635,260 TrumpDeathToll500K 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 1 baby! The pass 20 years more than 500,000 people died in Syria and nobody knows why and it's probably been erased from the history books
Dying from an illness at 60+ is way different than an 18 year old getting sent to a foreign land to die. Stop comparing them its fucking asinine. WestCoastSoles 😢 Very dramatic. How many people die in the US every year? Trump essentially had ordered death penalty on America in Jan 2020 when he knowingly allowed covid19 to spread in Washington, believing blue state residents would be harmed. Now 500k Americans have died under his watch. Trump should be charged for murder and then some.
And the one who downplayed it from the beginning is still there enjoying his life happily I predicted 500,000 back in May of last year. I have proof in emails I sent. I knew idiot dipshit nation would fuck it up. Well we haven't reached the 700k that was lost during the civil war. Much like the divide we have right now by one party trying to get over on another about who can save more lives when nothing really can be done except vaccinate and do everything to reach heard immunity.
BREAKING: MOTHER OF ONE of SEATTLES CHAZ MURDER VICTIMS OFFERS $5000 REWARD FOR ARREST OF MARCEL LONG AKA MARCEL GREEN ThanksTrump And it all well most of the deaths could have been prevented and there blood is on Donald Trump's hands because he did nothing when it was detected over here. The us death rate in 2020 is not significantly changed from prior years. I lost my father this year. He’s not just a number, no one is. Yet this headline, comparing this to the loss of 3 wars is insane. We loose 600k a year to cancer. Headline for that?
Or just 100,000 who died last here alone from heart disease. Could compare it that way too... Ugh. That is terrible. 🙏 nuanced_nl Geopol2030 We wouldn’t have that many covid19 deaths if we had Joe Biden as President when it started. The Trump excuse trolls are here! 😂 100,000 Plus have died since Inauguration Day. “I have a plan” 🤣🤣
Covid related. 23% of what was first 'predicted' Trump's legacy Sad Americans bought into his lies but...but....trump said he closed the border to china early..... Half as bad as the Spanish Flu. JOE BIDEN IS NOT MY PRESIDENT “bIdEns aMErIca” Biden virus 2.85 million Americans died in 2019. You comparing war to a virus? The soldiers died for a cause, right or wrong they did it to protect our freedom. Show some respect
The good news is the flu is no longer killing anyone. One year ago, I would have never imagined it could reach this horrific total. China’s biological warfare It's also more than 499,999 individual deaths from other causes combined. i wish the pandemic would have waited one year to hit so it happened when biden was in office. we would have never reached this number.
100,000 have died since inauguration day. Thanks a lot Andrew Cuomo. Half the deaths are in NY/NJ Guys, This spreads mainly via aerosols in dry, indoor air. Things that can help: 1. KF94 2. Crack 🪟 3. Prop 🚪 (if own a shop) 4. Merv13/Hepa 5. 40-60% humidity 6. CO2 sensors: aim 600 ppm Sources in my timeline
Wartime president 💔 If the average years lost is 13 years per person- that still a huge number! Staggering really. INFLATED NUMBERS shame on biden for letting americans die after he says he'll eliminate it. tsk tsk tsk Trump said it's only a few cases and it's under control ..... no? Just a colossal failure from the top on down
We did it! Joe 500k Biden Add them to Hillary Clinton’s body count Sickening, and the majority could have been prevented... Allahu akbar…. O Allah let us see in them the wonders of Your power… biden's america I wish we’d also report how many people normally die too. Just for some perspective Wow. 😳
