More Americans Have Now Died From Coronavirus Than All US Fatalities In Vietnam War

More Americans Have Now Died From Coronavirus Than All US Fatalities In Vietnam War

The death toll from the coronavirus in America has pushed past a devastating number.

Health officials have declared that 58,955 people have died in the US from Covid-19, which is more than the total number of American fatalities during the Vietnam War.

It's worth pointing out that it's taken just two months to reach that number, compared with nearly two decades in Vietnam. The first confirmed Covid-19 death in America was recorded on February 29.

The war in the south-east Asian country, which lasted from 1955 to 1975, claimed the lives of 58,318 Americans.

In addition to the number of fatal cases of Covid-19, there have now been more than one million people test positive for the virus. More than 118,000 people have recovered from the virus, however there are 857,000 active cases.

Figures provided by Bing illustrate that America makes up nearly one third of the total global cases, with 3.11 million positive test results being recorded around the world.

Within America, New York City makes up close to 30 per cent of all cases.
