U.S. COVID-19 Death Toll Equivalent to 109 Hurricane Katrinas

The U.S. reached a grim milestone of 200,000 coronavirus-related deaths Tuesday, the most in the world.

The death toll is equivalent to that of 109 Hurricane Katrinas or enduring 9/11 attacks every day for 66 days, CNN reported.

President Trump, when asked about the 200,000 mark, said “it’s a shame,” according to CNN.

As of Wednesday, the U.S. has roughly 6.9 million coronavirus cases — also tops globally — since the country’s first case was reported on Jan. 21, according to a Johns Hopkins University tracker.

Nearly 32 million cases currently have been documented worldwide, with more than 972,000 related deaths, Johns Hopkins reported.
