In less than a year, more Americans have died of COVID-19 than died during World War II, according to Johns Hopkins University data. In the 1,347 days from the attack on Pearl Harbor to V-J Day, 405,399 Americans died fighting in World War II, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs. In less than a quarter of that time, at least 409,000 Americans have lost their lives to COVID-19.
