Coronavirus losses compared with losses in World War I in the USA

34

The United States described the situation with coronavirus using comparisons with military casualties. The Associated Press news agency notes that during the First World War, the United States lost less of its citizens than with a coronavirus infection.


In particular, the following statistics are provided: 116917 people in the USA have died from COVID-19 since the beginning of 2020, and official losses in the WWI for the United States amounted to 116516 people.

It should be noted that earlier in the USA the losses from a new type of coronavirus were already compared with losses in wars, including conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq and Vietnam.

The US press added that in the coming days the country may have the largest outbreak. This forecast is based on the identification of dozens of carriers of infection among the protesters who, after participating in these protests, ended up in hospitals for various reasons. One of the reasons is injuries sustained in collisions with the police.

For reference: statistics indicate that it is the United States today that continues to remain in first place in terms of the number of infected COVID-19. The total number since the start of testing has exceeded 2 million people.

Meanwhile, on Russian federal channels, the theme of the coronavirus has again “moved geographically” to China. Describes cases of detection of a mutated virus in the Beijing market. And now it is alleged that it was imported to China along with Norwegian salmon. Now and fish flu? ..

          The facts:
          - The USA is one of the most powerful economies in the world.
          - The US has a well-developed computer network and home delivery of various goods
          - Coronavirus control methods are simple and straightforward, most easily implemented in conditions of developed home delivery of goods and the ability to work at home
          - USA is one of the countries most affected by coronovirus

          Conclusion:
          - high mortality from coronovirus in the USA is created artificially

      It seems that soon the number of victims of the virus in the United States will exceed the losses in the Second World and Vietnam. So far, no one knows when this pandemic will end.

        It will end in the fall ... in terms of the presidential election. I do not deny the presence of the disease. But - not a plague, not smallpox ... Who will win - I can’t predict, and it doesn’t matter to us - radish horseradish is not sweeter ... Nothing will change with respect to Russia, IMHO, until they again establish something like "Iron curtain "- and it doesn’t matter what they show - the main thing is that they refused to kiss their shoes ... True, there might not be enough tape ...

    States need to prepare for the second wave in connection with the protests. yes On the other hand, given their (state's) level of free medicine, they will solve the issue of protests, because it is among the protesters that the percentage of those who can only afford free medicine is high what

    The USA today continues to remain in first place in terms of the number of infected COVID-19
    Well, what is the United States used to being in first place in everything including simply obliged in this. The pandemic showed the complete failure of the American health care system, but this does not bother them much. Today it is more worrying massively (politicians, large firms, policemen) to repent, kneel, kiss a black boot and in return get a white face. And apparently the shame for the country and the white population is yet to come ...

    A million dollar bill came to an American for treating coronavirus. A 70-year-old American, Michael Flor, received a $ 1,12 million bill for coronavirus treatment from a Swedish clinic in Issakua. An elderly man spent two months in the hospital and was connected to a ventilator for a long time. The state of the senior citizen was critical, writes The Seattle Times.

    The ward in the intensive care unit cost Flora nine thousand 736 dollars a day. The ventilator for 29 days - in another two thousand 835 dollars per day. At the same time, the man has Medicare health insurance for the elderly, so he will not have to pay any part of the total amount.

      good For the record! Father (at the Pawns navigator) once said that they had such a joke: "Question: What Soviet sergeant kneelingare the Luftwaffe pilots most afraid of? Answer: The arrow-radio operator of the "pawn" - if he is on his knees - that means he either aims or shoots!"(due to the small diameter of the fuselage in place of the arrow of the radio operator - he could fire only while standing on his knees or lying on his stomach). drinks

      They have democracy, the Norwegians. But there is a big failure in sanitation. So carry sanitation on the wings. And write on bombs: "Byak Coronavirus" and "Koronavirus ket ... oh, go home"

    Capitalism, by definition, cannot have a developed mass healthcare system that extends to all sections of society. There is a suspicion that the current US military power is in approximately the same condition.

    The US Hydrometeorological Center reports that in the next series we will learn that the climate in Madagascar effectively affects the virus. Everyone who gets there at their own expense will receive a free plot and housing at the foot of the active volcano Marumukutra.
    P.S. Which virus is not indicated, but the news is positive.

    Absolutely stupid comparison. In WWI, this is only the US military losses and they are compared with mortality from a disease. But during PMV in the United States, people also died from the disease, including infection. In addition, the loss of combat-ready, young and healthy men cannot be compared with the loss of adult and sick men and women during the war. If the loss of soldiers is the heaviest loss for warfare, then the loss of the sick and the elderly, from the standpoint of humanism, is also heavy, but from the standpoint of the military efforts at least do not complicate them.

        On the contrary. This is normal for the USA. They always have a clearly formulated task, costs are calculated, human life has a monetary equivalent, efficiency is estimated by the ratio “beneficial effect - costs”, and peace is a special case of war.

          The US military losses in all the wars they waged are insignificant compared to their population. But the economic results are very great. Coronavirus caused an economic crisis in the States, in contrast to the wars they waged and are waging.

            Crises in the United States have always led to world wars. Is always. Not a coronavirus caused a crisis, but vice versa. This is for us instead of world war (I hope so). The following coronaviruses will be even worse. The US population must be reduced.

              Before World War I, there was no crisis in the United States.
              The economy was booming.
              Before World War II, US Economy Already Overcome Crisis
              1929 year. The crisis continued until 1933.
              Coronavirus will reduce the population of many countries, not only the United States.
              And China will win.

    The United States is spreading a misinformation about the number of infections and deaths among Americans from coronavirus - after the massive violation of the regime of self-isolation during riots in more than 400 cities, the actual number of infected and dead people has increased by 1,5 times and the pace continues to grow due to the exhaustion of the reserves of American medicine.

    The United States should not be compared with its military losses, but with the losses and the speed of the spread of the virus in countries where people glance at democracy. Democracy is a clear loser.

    A little cunning American accountants.
    Who did they lose 100 years ago in WWI?
    White young men, more than 100 thousand.
    And who will they lose now after the mass protests of blacks and looters of any race or nationality, and even supporters of democrats who have joined them?
    Does black life matter?
    Probably only really much less than the white young life 100 years ago.
    So I won’t be surprised if some puppeteers deliberately indulge these mass gatherings during the pandemic. I do not mean Badun and Nancy - their brains simply do not possess such depth ....
