Virus Death Toll in U.S. Passes 100,000

Total recoveries approach 500,000 in U.S.

Johns Hopkins University has reported that in just four months, the coronavirus has led to over 100,000 deaths in the United States. The first known virus-related fatality in the U.S. occurred in early February.

On Thursday, the president extended his sympathies to those affected by COVID fatalities. “We have just reached a very sad milestone with the coronavirus pandemic deaths reaching 100,000. To all of the families and friends of those who have passed, I want to extend my heartfelt sympathy and love for everything that these great people stood for and represent. God be with you!” he wrote in a tweet.

Former vice president and presidential nominee Joe Biden also relayed his grief. “There are moments in our history so grim, so heart-rending, that they’re forever fixed in each of our hearts,” he said, adding, “To those hurting, I’m so sorry for your loss. The nation grieves with you.”

President Trump ordered flags to be flown at half-staff this past weekend in honor of the men and women whose lives have been lost to the virus.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the families, friends and loved ones of those who have lost their lives due to the pandemic.
  • For God’s healing for people who are currently hospitalized with the virus.
