Coronavirus: A Grim Picture Ahead #Infographic

Secretary-General of the United Nations Antonio Guterres describes the latest coronavirus pandemic as a epidemic never seen in the past 75 years. His comments came after the White House predicted between 100,000 and 240,000 deaths in America from COVID-19, and after the implementation of stringent social distancing protocols in place Health experts still expect the death toll to be much higher – unless such measures were taken. Nonetheless, America is expected to see 1.5 to 2.5 million coronavirus-related deaths because they have taken precautionary steps.
The coronavirus has now claimed as of this writing the lives of over 5,000 Americans, and more than 216,000 diagnoses.

The following map compares death in actual historical events to the expected death toll in COVID-19. Sadly, the US death rate estimate for COVID-19 is not far from the 291,557 deaths in World War II and is five times more than American war deaths during the Vietnam War.

The White House, along with other regions of the world, aims to urge its citizens to follow social distancing guidelines in the coming weeks. Italy and Spain are the hardest-hit coronavirus areas after the US with more than 110,000 cases each.

China, the birthplace of the coronavirus, finally managed to contain the pandemic with strict isolation and door-to-door inspections.
