800,000 COVID-19 Deaths

From NBC News

“The United States passed another grim Covid-19 milestone Monday, as more than 800,000 Americans have now died from the virus that’s plagued the country for nearly two years. There have been at least 800,156 confirmed deaths traced to the coronavirus, according to a rolling tally by NBC News. That’s more than in any other nation, and more than the population of Boston, Washington, D.C., or Seattle. […] The previous 100,000 jump in deaths happened in 119 days, while the jump from 700,000 to 800,000 happened in 74, according to NBC News analysis. “It’s a very sad moment, it’s mind-boggling,” said Dr. Michael Rodriguez, vice chairman of the Department of Family Medicine at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine. “We’re beyond numb.” […] Dr. Vin Gupta, a critical care pulmonologist and affiliate associate professor at the University of Washington, said he fears the pandemic isn’t close to slowing down. He expects the U.S. death toll to reach 1 million at some point in 2022.”
