Countries might be loosening lockdown restrictions, but the coronavirus hasn’t gone away. There are a total of 10.3 million confirmed cases of infected worldwide and 2.59 million of these are in the United States alone, according to Johns Hopkins University. Brazil stands in second place with over 1.37 million cases while Russia has 640k confirmed infections. Meanwhile, India has nearly 567k cases, and the United Kingdom has 313k.

A lot of people are asking the question: why is America number 1 in the world when it comes to Covid-19 infections? It’s a complicated issue with no easy answers. However, some people on the internet are posting anecdotal evidence about how "bad" some Americans are with following coronavirus guidelines. Scroll down to have a look, dear Pandas, and upvote your faves. Oh, and keep in mind that different sources provide slightly different numbers of people who have been infected with the virus.

You can see up-to-date details about the coronavirus pandemic by visiting the Johns Hopkins University Covid-19 dashboard right here. It’s a great tool to use for more in-depth understanding and wider context on this health crisis.

In the US, more than 126k people have died with or because of the coronavirus. In some states, infection cases are soaring again, and plans to ease lockdown measures have been put on hold in some areas.

For example, even though the Fourth of July celebrations are approaching, Texas and some parts of California have ordered bars to close again.

On Saturday, June 27, the US recorded over 43k new coronavirus cases. Florida alone recorded 9,585 new cases in 24 hours on Saturday, which was a new daily record for the state. Georgia, Nevada, and South Carolina also reported new daily infection records.

The vietnam war killed millions of vietnameses, too.

M O'Connell

That is very true. Though in the US, the Vietnam War is widely considered to have been a mistake and a waste of resources, partially due to the loss of life with no actual results to show for it (at least in terms of long-term benefit to the US). Similarly, all the people who have died of COVID-19 haven't inspired those who remain to take adequate precautions.

Selfish. The concept of "Freedom" is so twisted for some people that it is sad. Freedom goes hand in hand with responsibility, a term these people don't know.

Lol. The Vietnam war wasn't really about how many Americans died, but how many Vietnamese died in the countless war crimes committed by Americans. These two stand in no comparison, the Vietnam war was infinitely worse! It's like saying WW2 wasn't all that bad, because over it's entire course only three hundred hamsters died in Greenland. That's not really the concern here^^

The Vietnam war did NOT last for 20 years.

Leo Bjerregaard
Community Member

You are correct. It lasted from November 1st 1955 to April 30th 1975 so 19 years, 5 months, 4 weeks, and 1 day. If we are talking only about the time the US was apart of then it's from February 28th 1961 to 1973 where they withdrew from Vietnam. So 12 years. COVID-19 still did it in under 20 weeks

Using that logic.... the flu has killed over 30000 this year alone.

M DR

We have a lot of people not getting their flu shots, too. But at least people have the option to get a vaccine for that. We don't have a vaccine against covid, so we have to do other things to protect ourselves until we do. Another factor is the availability of our doctors and nurses. We don't have the resources to fight BOTH if we just let covid run rampant.

Just to keep you on your toes, you ought to know that scientists in China have identified a new strain of flu that has the potential to become a new pandemic.

The new flu strain is carried by pigs but, according to researchers, it can infect human beings, too. There are fears that the strain could mutate even more and easily spread from human to human.
