COVID-19 Deaths Surpasses 65,000 in U.S.

Number higher than anticipated.

On Saturday, the reported number of deaths due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic reached a new milestone of 65,000. While the White House had initially forecasted that the U.S. could see as many as 100,000 to 240,000 deaths, in recent weeks, officials stated that projections should top out at 60,000.

President Trump highlighted the work of his administration to keep casualties low saying, “I don’t think anybody’s done a better job – with testing, with ventilators, with all the things that we’ve done. And our death totals — numbers per million people — are really very, very strong. We’re very proud of the job we’ve done.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For God to give President Trump wisdom on how to bring an end to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • For members of Congress to pass laws that will ease the pain of the fallout from the disease. 
  • For God to bring healing to America.
