So far, the virus has claimed 594,496 American lives -- more than the total number of Americans killed in World War I and World War II combined.

In the Milwaukee-Waukesha-West Allis metropolitan area, located in Wisconsin, a total of 2,317 deaths have been attributed to the virus, equal to 147 fatalities for every 100,000 people. Nationwide, 182 deaths have been attributed to the virus per 100,000 people.
