Very sadly, the recorded deaths from COVID-19 in the United States (US) have now surpassed half-a-million victims. We grieve and we remember the victims for each and everyone of them was a person, a life - someone's parent, spouse, child, grandparent, relative, friend, partner, associate and acquaintance, all taken too soon.
As global infections from SARS-CoV-2 total more than 12.3 million people and with deaths at 2.5 million, humanity places great hope in the developed and circulating vaccines to help mitigate the pesky invisible killer. In the US, a new recognition of the graveness of the disease from a new administration under President Joe Biden, has pushed hopes very high that in spite of the grim milestone in number of victims, much is finally being done to rein in the highly contagious COVID-19.
Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington, DC, earlier today, respectfully issued a Proclamation to Proclaim February 24, 2021 as "A Day Of Remembrance For Lives Lost To COVID-19" and she called "on all Washingtonians to pause and remember more than 1,000 neighbors, family, and friends whose lives were lost to the virus."
Hence, we pause, we grieve and we remember all the victims of COVID-19 worldwide. May they all travel well.
