National Vigil Held to Honor 400,000 Victims of COVID-19

Cns Covid Memorial

On Tuesday evening, a national vigil was held at the Reflecting Pool at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. to mark the 400,000 U.S. lives lost to COVID-19. Four hundred lanterns lined the Pool to commemorate the dead. "To heal, we must remember," said President Biden. The memorial also included 400 bell tolls at the national cathedral and churches across the country. The grim milestone in the U.S. is a stark reminder of the gravity of the COVID-19 virus, and marks the highest national death toll in the world of those countries reporting. The next is Brazil, with over 210,000 dead.
