More than 3 million will die in the U.S. during 2020, by far the most ever

It would be the largest single-year percentage leap since 1918, when tens of thousands of soldiers died in World War I and hundreds of thousands died in a flu pandemic.

This is the deadliest year in U.S. history, with deaths expected to top 3 million for the first time ó due mainly to the coronavirus pandemic.

Final mortality data for this year will not be available for months. But preliminary numbers suggest that the United States is on track to see more than 3.2 million deaths this year, or at least 400,000 more than in 2019.

U.S. deaths increase most years, so some annual rise in fatalities is expected. But the 2020 numbers amount to a jump of about 15 percent, and could go higher once all the deaths from this month are counted.

That would mark the largest single-year percentage leap since 1918, when tens of thousands of U.S. soldiers died in World War I and hundreds of thousands of Americans died in a flu pandemic. Deaths rose 46 percent that year, compared with 1917.

1. That's 1% of the population

There are about 1.3 million people in the entire US military. Just to give a perspective.

2. Remember this is only covering 10 months since the first death in the US

We cannot calculate until we get to March to see a full years impact. Add that on top of the collective PTSD from the Tru$$ia Psy Ops inflicted on our nation (thanks Zuckerberg!) and the damages are horrific.

I think we will see a 3% population reduction because of an murderous negligence by the mob administration.
