The Washington Post has a few graphics which may help you visualize this country's Covid-19 deaths, surpassing more than 250,000 victims.

The Post noted that the outbreak has killed:

  • Four times as many Americans as have died in the decade-long Vietnam War.
  • Twice as many Americans as were killed over two years in World War I.
  • Nearly two thirds as many Americans as have died during four years of fighting in World War II.
  • More than one-third of an estimated 675,000 Americans who died in the 1918-19 flu pandemic, which was the worst in modern history.
