CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19: “On Tuesday [Jan. 19, 2021], the last full day of Donald Trump’s presidency, the official [coronavirus] death count reached 400,000 — a once-unthinkable number. More than 100,000 Americans have perished in the pandemic in just the past five weeks.

In the U.S., someone now dies from COVID-19 every 26 seconds.”
