The US crossed the 250,000 COVID-19 death barrier on Friday the 13th, now at 251,256 deaths

Subtracting out the sub 80K population micro states of San Marino (Belgium will soon pass it as the number one nation in terms of deaths per million) and Andorra, the US is now 9th in terms of deaths per million. Many of the the South American nations are absolutely exploding across the board as well.

1. We have also just passed the official Spanish Flu death toll

which was also about a quarter-million.

Heck of a job, Donnie!

2. The US death toll form the Spanish Flu pandemic was around 675,000, per the CDC

https://www.cdc.gov/flu/pandemic-resources/1918-commemoration/1918-pandemic-history.htm

It is estimated that about 500 million people or one-third of the world’s population became infected with this virus. The number of deaths was estimated to be at least 50 million worldwide with about 675,000 occurring in the United States. Mortality was high in people younger than 5 years old, 20-40 years old, and 65 years and older. The high mortality in healthy people, including those in the 20-40 year age group, was a unique feature of this pandemic.

4. I know the REAL death toll was at the level you cited and

above, but the OFFICIAL death toll was “only” 250k.

I fear we’ll come closer to 675k dead come Spring 2021.
