Pandemic deaths take over war tolls
According to reports, more than 2,400 American soldiers were killed and over 1,100 others were wounded when the Imperial Japanese Army launched a surprise attack at a Pearl Harbor naval base in Honolulu, Hawaii on the morning of December 7, 1941. The attack led to the United States’ formal entry into World War II the next day.
The September 11, 2001 attacks killed more than 3,000 people and triggered the United States to start anti-terrorism operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other countries, which is still going on and is considered the longest-running military operation in the world.
Meanwhile, the coronavirus outbreak has infected more than a million people in the United States alone and has killed over 73,000 people to date. The United States is the worst affected country by the pandemic that has roots in China.
Health experts believe that the virus originated from a seafood market in the Chinese city of Wuhan, where exotic animals were reportedly being traded illegally. According to figures on the Worldometer website, over 3.79 million people have been infected by the disease globally, of which 2,62,641 have lost their lives to the pandemic.
