U.S. Officially Surpasses 150,000 Coronavirus Deaths

US surpoasses 150,000 deathsAt least 150,000 people in the United States have now died of the coronavirus, according to Johns Hopkins University. The grim milestone comes months after President Donald Trump claimed Democrats were starting a false panic over COVID-19 and predicted that the number of cases in the U.S. would “go down close to zero” within days.

In reality, every state in the nation remains gripped by the pandemic in one way or another. Widespread deaths and hospitalizations, as well as waves of forced economic shutdowns to curb the spread of the virus, are the markings of a nation that, by the numbers, has waged the world’s worst fight against coronavirus.

Trump, who in February said he believed the virus would “miraculously” go away by April, has tried desperately to turn Americans’ attention from the virus, reportedly out of concern for his own political prospects. In recent weeks, he has focused on amplifying far-right, white nationalist grievances, including voicing his disapproval over housing desegregation measures and the removal of monuments and symbols honoring the Confederacy. In response to demonstrations against police brutality and racial injustice, his administration has also deployed a squad of unidentified federal officials to violently quell protests.
