More than 100,000 people have died of COVID-19 in the US, which is comparable to the number of residents in a city like Edison, New Jersey
- The US surpassed 100,000 deaths due to the novel coronavirus on Wednesday.
- That's the equivalent of the entire population of Edison, New Jersey dying.
- More than 4,000 US cities have a population of fewer than 100,000 people.
The death toll from the coronavirus in the US surpassed 100,000 on Wednesday. That's roughly the populations of Edison, New Jersey, (99,967, according to the 2010 US census) Kenosha, Wisconsin, (99,218, according to the 2010 US census), or even Flint, Michigan (102,434, according to the 2010 US census).
The US has 4,115 cities that have a population of fewer than 100,000 people.In just three months, the death toll from COVID-19 is also more than the number of "US military combat fatalities in every conflict since the Korean War," The New York Times reported.
However even as the country surpassed 100,000 deaths, experts have long believed that official death counts are vastly undercounted.The grim milestone comes not along after one Columbia University model showed that about 36,000 fewer people would have died if the United States had enacted social distancing measures sooner.
