[ExI] More Americans died of COVID-19 than died in battle in Korea

There were 33,643 American battle deaths during the Korean war, as if today
April 17 at 11:54 GMT there were 34,641 deaths from COVID-19. It took the
Korean war 3 years one month and 2 days to manufacture that number of
cadavers. COVID-19 beat that number in just 48 days. And there are lots of
theories but nobody is certain how high that number will get, the only
thing that's certain is the number will be much higher if the quarantine is
lifted too soon.

And since April 7 COVID-19 has been the leading cause of death in the USA
killing more people per day than heart disease (on average about 1,770
deaths per day) or cancer (about 1,640) or anything else. Yesterday
COVID-19 killed 2,174 Americans. Do you *really* think ending the
quarantine right now is a good idea?
