The first death from corona virus infection in America occurred in 2020. Let us know that according to data collected by John’s Hopkins University, the number of deaths from Kovid-19 (Covid-19) so far is more than the total deaths due to respiratory disease, paralysis, Alzheimer’s flu, and pneumonia in 2019. Before this, America had not lost so many people in any war or epidemic. An estimated 405,000 people died in the Second World War, 58,000 in the Vietnam War and 36,000 in the Korean War. But more than 5 lakh people lost their lives in the last 1 year from Kovid-19. America’s infectious disease specialist Dr. Anthony Fauchi told a CNN program that we have not seen anything like this in the last years after the 1918 Influenza epidemic.
