In the US, the number of deaths with Covid-19 exceeds half a million – Abroad – News


The death toll from Covid-19 in the United States rose to 500,071 on Monday. It is twice as large as Brazil, which ranks second in the world in terms of Covid-19 casualties.

The number of deaths with Covid-19 in the United States in mid-January exceeded 400,000.

The number of new infections is now declining, but the number of deaths continues to rise. The number of people infected with the new coronavirus in the United States has exceeded 28 million.

At a ceremony at the White House on Monday, U.S. President Joe Biden commemorated the deaths of half a million Americans and ordered flags to be flown off at the White House and federal buildings, as well as at U.S. embassies around the world.

The ceremony, which commemorated the passers-by with a moment of silence and the lighting of 500 candles at the White House, was attended by Biden with Mrs. Jill and Vice President Kamala Harris with her husband Dag Emhof.

“I know how it is,” Biden said in a televised address, referring to his family’s tragedies.

“I call on all Americans to mention those we have lost (..) I also call on us to act, to remain vigilant, to continue social distancing, to wear masks, to be vaccinated.”

“We as a nation cannot and must not allow it to continue. We must fight it together as one nation, as the United States.”

Biden has warned that the number of deaths with Covid-19 in the United States could significantly exceed 600,000.
