The year 2020 has been a grim one for hundreds of millions of Americans. The coronavirus pandemic has been the biggest issue looming over the American landscape. This deadly viral disease has taken the lives of over 200,000 American people. Many news outlets and members of the medical community refer to this death toll as a grim milestone.

The coronavirus took place early in 2020. Since that time, the disease has staunchly attacked various states, regions, cities, communities, and neighborhoods across the U.S. The death toll within the U.S. makes up 20% of the total amount of COVID-19 deaths in the world. The U.S. leads the coronavirus death toll within the world.

There are many different reasons for the high U.S. death toll. Some attribute this high rise in death to the president’s leadership failure during this pandemic. Others blame the American people’s slow acceptance of wearing masks and social distancing. Many of the people who have died from the disease lived inside of urban areas. This is another factor that has led to a high death rate.
