On May 12, according to Reuters statistics, the number of deaths in the United States from the CCP virus exceeded the one million mark, including more than a thousand children. This means that for every 327 Americans, about 1 person died. The death toll has even surpassed the population of San Francisco or Seattle. On March 11, 2020, when the WHO declared the CCP virus a global pandemic, the virus had already claimed 36 lives. By June 2020, the lives lost in the United States due to the virus had already surpassed the death toll of American servicemen in World War I. By January 2021, the death toll had risen to 405,000, reaching the death toll of the U.S. military in World War II and the average daily death toll from the CCP virus, exceeding the death toll in 9/11.
Today, the death toll has passed the million mark. Researchers estimate that 213,000 American children have lost at least one parent or primary caregiver during the pandemic, and it has caused irreparable damage to the child’s physical and mental health.
Today, US President Joe Biden expressed his condolences on social media. “In honor of today’s tragic milestone, I have ordered the White House to fly at half-mast in memory of the 1 million Americans who have lost their lives to the CCP virus.”
