Corona disease kills more Americans than the Vietnam War
The Coronavirus epidemic, which began in December 2019 in the Chinese city of Wuhan, has infected more than 3,117,000 people worldwide as of April 29, but it has hit the United States the hardest.
Although the Corona epidemic, which began in China, claimed lives in 190 countries around the world, it was the deadliest in the United States.
As of the morning of April 29, 1 million of the more than 3,117,000 people infected with Corona worldwide were from the United States.
As of the morning of April 29, 58,351 of the more than 217,200 people killed by Corona worldwide were from the United States.
As of the morning of April 29, the number of Americans dying from the coronavirus in the United States was higher than the number of American soldiers killed in the war between the United States and Vietnam half a century ago, according to AFP.
The war between the United States and its allies in Vietnam erupted after 1958, ostensibly to divide Vietnam into two parts, like Korea, but the war lasted for more than a decade and a half between the two countries' allies. The name could not be divided into two parts.
Although an estimated 1.2 million lives were lost in the nearly decade-and-a-half-long Vietnam War, figures show that up to 58,150 US troops were killed in that war over a decade and a half.
The death toll from Corona has risen to 58,351 in the past 24 hours across the United States, according to AFP, more than the number of US troops killed in the Vietnam War.
While Corona has caused the most deaths in the United States, it has also affected the most people in the United States and the number of people affected in the United States as a whole is greater than all the countries of Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
More than one million people in the United States have been infected with the corona, but it is estimated that another five to eight million people in the United States could be affected.
Corona is currently most prevalent in the United States, followed by Europe, where up to 1.5 million people have been affected and nearly 100,000 have been killed.
The Coronavirus epidemic had spread to 193 countries, islands, and sovereign states by April 29, and dozens of countries had severe and partial lockdowns to prevent the outbreak, but many countries did not. Has also begun to soften.
Despite the spread of Corona, the biggest affected countries have softened the lockdown, including Italy, Spain, and Germany, while several US states have also made some easings.
In addition, in most Muslim countries of the world, the lockdown has been relaxed on the occasion of the month of Ramadan, however, the normalcy of life has not been fully restored in any country.
