Johns Hopkins University Data States 1 in Every 500 Americans Have Died of COVID 19

A report on CNN last night reported some sobering numbers on America’s Coronavirus deaths over the past 18 months.

CNN reports:

The United States has reached another grim milestone in its fight against the devastating Covid-19 pandemic: 1 in 500 Americans have died from coronavirus since the nation’s first reported infection.

As of Tuesday night, 663,913 people in the US have died of Covid-19, according to Johns Hopkins University data. According to the US Census Bureau, the US population as of April 2020 was 331.4 million.

It’s a sobering toll that comes as hospitals in the US are struggling to keep up with the volume of patients and more children are grappling with the virus.

Thanks Donald Trump, evangelicals, the GOP and anti-vaxers. What an impressive team-up. It couldn’t have happened without out you.
