In the United States, the coronavirus Covid-19 has already claimed the lives of half a million people. Many commemorations were dedicated to the sad event on Monday, February 22nd.
US President Joe Biden held a special ceremony and hoisted the flags at the main federal authorities. After a moment of silence, 500 candles were lit at the White House in memory of the victims of the disease.
In his speech, he pointed out that the coronavirus claimed more lives than died during the First and Second World Wars and the Vietnam War together.
Biden called on people to act and remain vigilant, as well as to continue to socially distance themselves, wear face masks and be vaccinated.
Meanwhile, doctors report that the total number of people infected with the coronavirus in the United States has exceeded 28 million. The number of new cases is decreasing, but the number of deaths is increasing.
In the last day, the disease claimed the lives of almost 1,400 people.
China informed the World Health Organization (WHO) in late 2019 about the spread of the new coronavirus in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, home to 11 million people. The WHO announced in March 2020 that Covid-19 had reached the level of a global pandemic.
A few months later, in the summer, there was a reduction in the spread of the infection in Europe, which led to the lifting of a series of strict restrictions. However, in mid-September 2020, the WHO warned that Europe would face an increase in Covid-19 coronavirus deaths in the autumn months. The prevalence of Covid-19 will not decrease in early 2021 either.
