(Natural News) With covid-19 (coronavirus) deaths now approaching 34,000 in the United States (worldometers.info), it’s important to accurately assess the scale of the deaths vs. other important “disaster” events in American history.
Given that the Wuhan coronavirus was engineered as a biological weapon, it counts as a “man-made” disaster. This is especially true given that communist China deliberately spread the virus to the rest of the world — a fact the mainstream media is now finally starting to uncover in their own reporting.
We’ve created a chart that details the covid-19 deaths vs other notable events in US history, including 9/11, the Oklahoma City bombing, the Las Vegas shooting, Hurricane Maria, etc.
As you can see from the chart, as of April 16th, 2020, covid-19 deaths are more than 10 times higher than the next largest event (Hurricane Maria) in terms of total dead.
As the covid-19 numbers will continue to climb for many months, it’s eventually going to dwarf these other events in terms of total fatalities:
Astute readers may note that it’s apples and oranges, comparing covid-19 (an infectious disease), against non-infectious events such as 9/11. That’s a rational point, yet people who are trying to downplay the severity of the virus are now routinely comparing covid-19 deaths against cancer, heart disease, car accidents, obesity and all sorts of other things which are not infectious diseases and that have no single common initiating event. Covid-19 was initiated by China, whereas cancer and heart disease are slow, degenerative diseases that take decades to develop in each individual.
So comparing covid-19 deaths to degenerative disease makes no sense at all.
What covid-19 has in common with all the events in this chart is that all these events were initiated on a single date and struck the world essentially all at once. Some were man-made (such as 9/11), and others were the result of natural events (such as hurricanes). Yet they all originated outside the control of the people who were victimized by such events.
Also, note how the left-wing media went insane over the Charlottesville “attack” as a way to smear Trump supporters as Nazis, but the entire thing revolved around a single death. Compare that to the 33,000+ deaths already attributed to the coronavirus (which the media is of course trying to blame on Trump anyway).
It just goes to highlight the left-wing media overreaction to relatively small events. And in this particular case with the coronavirus, we are witnessing a conservative media under-reaction to the severity of covid-19, where conservative publishers have been desperately grasping at any argument they can find to try to claim this virus is “no worse than the flu.”
Interestingly, according to the CDC, the seasonal flu killed 34,157 people across the entire flu season (2018 – 20219). That number of deaths will be exceeded tomorrow by the coronavirus, and the coronavirus deaths all took place in just three months, not a full year.
By the time this year is over, coronavirus deaths will vastly exceed seasonal flu deaths by a wide margin, and the coronavirus probably hasn’t even infected 1% of the U.S. population yet.
In other words, this rolling man-made disaster has only just begun.

About the author: Mike Adams (aka the “Health Ranger“) is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com called “Food Forensics“), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics. Follow his videos, podcasts, websites and science projects at the links below.
Mike Adams serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation. He has also achieved numerous laboratory breakthroughs in the programming of automated liquid handling robots for sample preparation and external standards prep.
The U.S. patent office has awarded Mike Adams patent NO. US 9526751 B2 for the invention of “Cesium Eliminator,” a lifesaving invention that removes up to 95% of radioactive cesium from the human digestive tract. Adams has pledged to donate full patent licensing rights to any state or national government that needs to manufacture the product to save human lives in the aftermath of a nuclear accident, disaster, act of war or act of terrorism. He has also stockpiled 10,000 kg of raw material to manufacture Cesium Eliminator in a Texas warehouse, and plans to donate the finished product to help save lives in Texas when the next nuclear event occurs. No independent scientist in the world has done more research on the removal of radioactive elements from the human digestive tract.
Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and American Indians. He is of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his “Health Ranger” passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.
Adams is the author of the world’s first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.
In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.
In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.
With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.
Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed “strange fibers” found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health “gurus,” dangerous “detox” products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.
Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over fifteen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
