(CNN)The number of deaths caused by the novel coronavirus neared 100,000 on Monday, as Americans — some who decided to forgo social distancing — wrapped up their Memorial Day weekends.

As of Monday evening, the number of coronavirus-related deaths had reached 98,218, more than the number of US troops killed in the Korean and Vietnam wars combined.
President Donald Trump commemorated Memorial Day at Arlington National Cemetery and at an event in Baltimore, where he added a tribute to the victims of the virus.
“As one nation, we mourn alongside every single family that has lost loved ones, including the families of our great veterans,” he said at the second event. “Together, we will vanquish the virus and America will rise from this crisis to new and greater heights.”

At a glance, it looked this weekend like many Americans have forgotten about the dangers of coronavirus.



Crowds packed beaches in Florida, Maryland, Georgia, Virginia and Indiana. Many people ventured out without masks and others failed to keep their distance even as officials highlighted the continued importance of both in order to prevent another surge of infections.

  1. One thing positive from this pandemic. It is encouraging to see is how much concern conservatives have for those with mental health issues, the addicts and the poor working class in the unemployment line. It is very heartening to see such concern in America. And I was lead to believe There was no racism and that “all he sees is (they saw was) Green” DJT
