KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The COVID-19 pandemic has claimed more American lives than the 18-year conflict in Afghanistaninfo-icon -- the longest war in US history. The coronavirus fatalities in the US rose to 2,479 on Sunday, the Newsweek reported on Monday, citing data from Johns the Hopkins University. The virus-triggered deaths have exceeded the 2,445 casualties the Pentagon personnel and civilians have suffered in Afghanistan and related missions between 2001 and 2020. As his administration has been trying to rein in the pandemic, President Donald Trump told a media briefing on Sunday the "peak in death rate is likely to hit in two weeks." COVID-19 fatalities in the US could reach between 100,000 and 200,000 based on current rates, estimated Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
