BREAKING: To acknowledge the United States crossing 500,000 COVID-19 deaths, President Biden will order flags flown at half staff for the next 5 days.
"To heal we must remember." -- President Biden
"Don’t clap, don’t give me baked goods. I don’t need any of that. I need you to wear a mask and not get COVID.”
Last May, 100,000 deaths was unfathomable. Now we’re about to reach a landmark five times that: 500,000 COVID deaths in the US.
Please join us Monday night at 11 pm ET on CNN to come together and reflect, and mourn, and pray.
WE REMEMBER: 500,000 — tomorrow night, only on CNN. https://t.co/SsLLlxNnLv
500,000 Covid deaths in the US — who thought we’d ever reach this grim milestone??
So Trump is now responsible for over 500,000 Covid deaths in America... #DonaldJTrump is responsible for killing more Americans than any single person on Earth in all of History.
Pres. Biden urged the country to think about the people behind the statistic of over 500,000 Covid-19 deaths, calling it a "truly grim, heartbreaking milestone" before a candle lighting ceremony at the White House.
"The people we lost were extraordinary." https://t.co/fSrykyMcVe
The U.S. has now lost nearly 500,000 lives to COVID-19 in just one year.
"It's almost the population of Wyoming that we've lost," says Josh, whose father Alan died just after Thanksgiving.
"We've almost lost a state's worth of people."
Saying that the $600 we got from Trump is part of the $2000 @joebiden, @ReverendWarnock
promised us is the logical equivalent of saying all 500,000 Covid deaths are Biden's fault.
400,000 + 100,000 = 500,000.
My heart goes out to every family that’s been affected by this devastating pandemic as America crosses the grim milestone of 500,000 COVID deaths.
I will do everything I can to help us defeat this virus, to recover, and to support our communities during this difficult time.
Moment of silence tonight 🕯️
500 CANDLES surround President Biden, First Lady, Vice President Harris & the Second Gentleman at the White House... Bells tolling & Amazing Grace honoring 500,000 COVID victims.
It was moving.
It was somber.
It was necessary.

I cried as President Biden said:
"The every day things, the tiny things, that you miss the most. That scent when you open the closet, that park you go by that you used to stroll in..."
The 500,000 COVID victims aren't forgotten 😭

It’s official: 500,000 COVID-19 deaths in the US.
Absolutely devastating, and the result of a complete failure of political leadership at all levels.
We must mourn today and act tomorrow so that we never let this happen again.
I remember when #TheFormerGuy said “We have it totally under control, it’s one person, coming in from China and we have under control, it’s gonna be just fine.”
The USA just passed 500,000 covid deaths according to Johns Hopkins.
Because of Incompetence. https://t.co/wxaXolY2lq

Pres. sec Psaki says Pres. Biden will lower flags at half-staff on federal property for the next five days in honor of the 500,000 COVID-19 related deaths.
UK media rightly pointing to devastating 500,000 Covid-19 death toll in the US. What isn’t being reported alongside this is that US deaths per million (1,542) is lower than the UK figure per million people (1,773)
The passing of 500,000 Americans has taken an immeasurable toll on our communities. They were friends, parents, siblings, neighbors.
We must be hopeful that the vaccine & public health measures will save lives but we cannot ever forget those we’ve lost. https://t.co/TQeZbYrKRj
Does it bother you the US has surpassed 500,000 Covid deaths?
I just watched Biden's speech on the half million lives lost to Covid. I cannot recall -- not ever -- a presidential address that was that raw, that personal, that moving, that true to life. Please watch the speech rather than just read about it. https://t.co/eDUekUND2m
When are the ceremonies for dementia and alzheimers? They've killed millions of the same age group as those who succumbed to covid.
