COVID-19 Deaths Compared to War

“More Americans have died from Covid-19 than on the battlefields of World War I, World War II and the Vietnam War combined.”

Remy Tumin and Jeremiah M. Bogert, Jr., “Your Weekend Briefing.” The New York Times. February 21, 2021.

As another point of reference, 27 million people died in the Soviet Union during World War II.
