Detail Facts About Most dead ever from an earthquake:

2,000 people perished in earthquakes in 2022, with 1,400 of those deaths occurring in Afghanistan. This is nothing in comparison to the earthquake that struck Shaanxi, China in 1556, which claimed 830,000 lives. At the time, China’s population was 110 million. They lost 7% of their country’s population. No earthquake has subsequently reached such a level of fatalities.
