Reaching yet another grim milestone, the novel coronavirus has killed 1 million people worldwide, according to the latest data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
The United States, with more than 205,000 deaths, makes up the largest chunk of that figure, accounting for about one-fifth of the worldwide death toll. Brazil follows with more than 141,000 deaths, and India is next with nearly 96,000.
The World Health Organization declared the coronavirus a pandemic on March 11 — merely 201 days ago.
The disease has killed more Americans than every war US soldiers have died in since 1945 combined, Business Insider's John Haltiwanger reported. The leading cause of death for Americans, heart disease, typically kills fewer than 650,000 people per year.
The pandemic has created uncertainty and instability, leading to roiled markets, shuttering many small businesses nationwide, and forcing the world to adapt to a new normal.
