U.S. deaths from new coronary pneumonia
More than the sum of the dead in the Vietnam War in World War I and World War II
The cumulative number of deaths from new coronary pneumonia in the United States exceeded 500,000. The New York Times pointed out that this number is more than the total number of Americans who died in World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War combined. At present, the United States is still the country with the largest number of deaths from new coronary pneumonia in the world. However, many American public health agencies and experts pointed out that the actual death toll in the United States may be higher.
The ABC reported on the 22nd that the death toll exceeded 500,000, which means that 1 in 656 Americans will die of new coronary pneumonia. It is equivalent to an average of one American dying from new coronary pneumonia every minute in the past year.
U.S. deaths from 400,000 to 500,000 in just 34 days
The U.S. population accounts for about 4% of the global population, but the number of deaths from the new coronary pneumonia in the United States accounts for 20% of the world. In the past two months, the number of deaths from new coronary pneumonia in the United States has risen rapidly, and it took only 34 days to increase the death toll from 400,000 to 500,000.
The United States officially reported the first death of new coronary pneumonia on February 29, 2020 local time. According to statistics from Johns Hopkins University, 94 days later, on June 2, the cumulative number of deaths exceeded 100,000. On September 22, the cumulative number of deaths exceeded 200,000, and it took 112 days to go from 100,000 to 200,000. On December 14, local time, this number exceeded 300,000, and it took 83 days to go from 200,000 to 300,000.
Entering 2021, the cumulative number of deaths from new coronary pneumonia in the United States has risen rapidly. After just 36 days, on January 19, local time, the cumulative number of deaths exceeded 400,000. By February 22, 34 days later, this number exceeded 500,000. In these thirty days, two people died of new coronary pneumonia every minute in the United States.
Recently, the number of newly confirmed cases and the number of deaths in a single day in the United States has been on a downward trend. However, Warrensky, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, recently stated that these data are still much higher than last summer, and that the new coronavirus variants continue to spread in the United States, which is likely to push up the epidemic data again. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in the United States, also said that it is expected that by the end of March, the new coronavirus variant found in the UK may become the main strain spreading in the United States.
Previously, many media quoted British scientists’ research reports that there is more and more evidence that the new coronavirus variants found in the UK are associated with a higher risk of death. This feature will bring the severe anti-epidemic situation in the United States. Come greater uncertainty.
US experts say there is still a long way to go in fighting the epidemic

Nancy Messonnier, director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said while attending the conference that the cumulative number of deaths from new coronary pneumonia in the United States has exceeded 500,000. The new coronary pneumonia pandemic is not over and there is still a long way to go. .
Nancy Messonnier, director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: A year ago, there were only 14 cases of new coronary pneumonia in the United States, and today (22nd) there are more than 500,000 deaths. Even if the number of new confirmed cases and new deaths in the United States and many parts of the world begins to decline, the new coronary pneumonia pandemic is obviously not over, and there is still a long way to go.
