Are we becoming numb to the loss of lives associated with Covid-19?

Today, we reached 23.3 million U.S. Covid-19 cases. 388,700 Americans have died. We can not become immune to the tragic loss of life.

It took four years to lose 405,000 U.S. fatalities from World War II.

In January, the U.S. averaged 230,000 new infections and 3,000 deaths per day. Los Angeles is now averaging one death every six minutes.

IMHE projects 566,720COVID-19 deaths by May 1.

These numbers matter. Let them sink in.

We can change them, but we must come together as a society and do what we know works to save lives: Wear a mask, social distancing, wash your hands, and get vaccinated.

Each lost life must mean something.
