According to foreign media reports, this week, the United States ushered in a grim milestone, local time on Tuesday morning, the country's new coronavirus death toll exceeded 400000 people.

According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, in the 1347 days from Pearl Harbor to World War II Victory Day, 405399 Americans died in World War II. Yet in less than a quarter of the time, at least 40, 022 Americans have died from cowid-19.
