The victims of the pandemic were honored in the United States. President Joe Biden presided over a brief ceremony in front of the White House. Together with Vice President Kamala Harris, he observed a minute of silence in memory of the deceased.
“We have been fighting the pandemic for so long. We must not allow ourselves to lose our ability to grieve. We must not allow ourselves to look at the dead as some kind of statistic or another piece of news in the shows.
Today I call you – let us remember the dead. But at the same time – to remain vigilant. Let’s get vaccinated. Let’s follow the measures. Let’s stop the misinformation that divides us.
Democrats and Republicans are not dying from the disease. Our American compatriots are dying. We have to fight it as one. Like the people of the United States, “Biden said.
The reason was the sad record set yesterday. The death toll from COVID-19 in the United States is now more than half a million. The country lost more people to the new disease than in World War II and the Vietnam War combined.
The United States is the country with the most fatalities in the world. There live four percent of the world’s population, and the victims of the disease are nearly 20% of all deaths.
