We are now several months into the most devastating pandemic that much of our generation has seen, the disease known as Covid-19. Quarantining, lock-downs, social distancing, all the mitigating efforts we have undertaken to keep this virus at bay, have brought us to where we are today. The numbers are frightening.
As of June 4, deaths in New York City alone have reached 16,992, with an additional 4,760 potentially virus-related deaths. New York state has the most deaths from COVID-19. Of the 383,899 infected residents, 30,281 have died.
Nationwide, as of June 4, more than 1,924,051 people are now infected, while 110,173 people have died from the virus, according to Worldometers. This number is probably far from accurate since many people have symptoms but aren’t tested. Around the world, there are 6,692,694 cases, with 392,298 deaths.
