Half a million deaths … Biden consoles the United States


US President Joe Biden addressed the American people, on Monday, offering condolences after announcing the death of half a million people in the United States as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Biden said that “the number of Americans who have died from the Corona virus has exceeded the number of deaths in the two world wars and the Vietnam War.”

The US President emphasized that those who have died “are not just numbers,” adding, “I know very well the pain that the loss of loved ones causes.”

Nelia, Joe Biden’s first wife, died in a car accident in 1972 with their infant daughter, Naomi, while their two sons, Beau and Hunter, survived the death despite their severe injuries.

Poe died of brain cancer in 2015, and Biden was keen to visit his son’s grave after giving his presidential election victory speech.

The American President stressed the need for American unity “as it is the only solution to confront the virus together.”

Biden ended his speech by saying, “I ask Americans to be vigilant, abide by safety rules, and take the vaccine when it is available,” and held a minute of silence for the souls of the sick.

In honor of those who died of the new virus, Washington National Cathedral rang its bells.

The White House also lit thousands of candles to honor the people whose lives have been taken by disease.
