One million people in the United States have died from COVID-19 since the new virus spread worldwide in 2020, according to Johns Hopkins University.

For the past more than two years, Americans have been living on their feet, ready to grab a mask at a moment’s notice, sign up for a vaccine dose, or stand in line for tests. And they were the lucky ones. The relentless daily death counts underscore the suffering they loved by the one million dead, many of whom were denied the opportunity to say goodbye.

One million deaths in just over two years is hard to understand, but it’s as if almost the entire population of Rhode Island was wiped out in just two years by a terrible disease.
