400,000 COVID-19 Deaths

From NBC News:

“More than 400,000 people have died of the coronavirus in the United States, according to an NBC News tally early Tuesday, a milestone that seemed unimaginable at the start of the pandemic a year ago. More than 2 million people have been recorded killed by the virus worldwide, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. The U.S. death toll is the world’s highest, even though the country has less than 5 percent of the world’s population. As of early Tuesday, there have been 400,103 U.S. deaths from Covid-19, according to NBC News’ count. That is nearly equal to the number of American military casualties in World War II, which stands at around 405,000, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs. […] 24 million people have been infected in the U.S., the highest number of confirmed cases in the world. California on Monday became the first state to reach 3 million cases, and Los Angeles county crossed the 1 million case mark over the weekend, according to the NBC News tally. The number of those killed is much higher than expected at the pandemic’s outset.”
