According to CDC data, nearly 600,000 Americans have died from the coronavirus. That includes mother’s, father’s, children, sons, daughters, grandparents, cousins, teachers and friends. Millions of Americans have been affected by the pandemic, whether directly, or indirectly.
During yesterday’s press conference at the NATO summit in Brussels, Belgium, president Biden said:
“We’ve made enormous progress in the United States. Much of the country is returning to normal. And our economic growth is leading the world, and the number of cases and deaths are dropping dramatically, but there’s still too many lives being lost. We’re still averaging in the last even days the loss of 370 deaths per day. That’s significantly lower than at the peak of this crises. But it’s still a tragedy. We’re approaching a sad milestone, almost 600,000 lost lives because of COVID-19 in America. My heart goes out to all those who have lost a loved one.
“That’s why I continue to say, America, if you have not been vaccinated, get vaccinated. Get vaccinated as soon as possible, We have plenty of vaccines. Plenty of sites. We have more work to do to beat this virus, and now’s not the time to let our guard down. Please get vaccinated. There’s been enough pain.“
