More than half a million corona deaths in the USA


The pandemic left more American casualties than World War I, World War II, and Vietnam War combined. US President Joe Biden mourned the victims in front of the White House.

US President Joe Biden has warned urgently against dulling in view of the high number of corona deaths. “We have to fight against becoming deaf to suffering. We have to fight against seeing every life as a statistic,” demanded Biden on Monday evening (local time) in a speech in the White House. “We have to do this to honor the dead. Just as important is caring for the living, those who have been left behind,” said Biden. Every corona death had family, friends and an “extraordinary life” that ended too soon.

The USA passed the threshold of more than half a million corona deaths on Monday. “That means more Americans died in a single year from this pandemic than in World War I, World War II and the Vietnam War combined,” Biden said.

After the speech, Biden, First Lady Jill Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband Douglas Emhoff honored the victims with a minute’s silence on the south side of the White House, where numerous candles were lit. They bowed their heads and shortly afterwards a military band played the song “Amazing Grace”.

No country has more corona deaths to complain than the USA

Biden had previously ordered the lowering of the American flag to half-mast. This applies for five days at public buildings, military bases and all US government diplomatic missions abroad.

According to data from the University of Johns Hopkins, US authorities had reported 500,159 deaths after infection with the Sars-CoV-2 pathogen by Monday evening. In absolute numbers, there are no other country in the world that has so many confirmed corona deaths.
