I have to agree.
If I want to compare the deaths, a quick google search for the pandemic news will make the same comparison for me.
I’m sure all of us know the counts in our own country.

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.

Yesterday COVID-19 killed 2,174 Americans. Do you *really* think ending the quarantine right now is a good idea?
