President Biden marks 500,000 lives lost in the U.S. to Covid-19. Image
Pres. Biden: "Today, we mark a truly grim, heartbreaking milestone. 500,071 dead. That's more Americans who have died in one year in this pandemic than in World War I, World War II and the Vietnam War combined. That's more lives lost to this virus than any other nation on Earth."
President Biden reflects on the 500,000 lives lost to Covid-19: "We often hear people described as ordinary Americans. There's no such thing. There's nothing ordinary about them. The people we lost were extraordinary. They span generations. Born in America, emigrated to America."
