This coronavirus pandemic has killed over 100,000 Americans alone. It has changed the way we live.
That’s pretty awful. But compared to other historical events, how bad is it?
This article shows how this pandemic compares to other major disasters of the last 100 years. It’s worse than the 1918 Spanish flu was in New York City and Boston, but still not as bad as the Spanish flu in Philadelphia. And not as bad the 2011 Earthquake and tsunami in Miyagi, Japan.
It’s a great visual to help understand a terrible event.
