(CNN)The United States has reached another grim milestone in its fight against the devastating Covid-19 pandemic: 1 in 500 Americans have died from coronavirus since the nation’s first reported infection.

As of Tuesday night, 663,913 people in the US have died of Covid-19, according to Johns Hopkins University data. According to the US Census Bureau, the US population as of April 2020 was 331.4 million.
It’s a sobering toll that comes as hospitals in the US are struggling to keep up with the volume of patients and more children are grappling with the virus. In hopes of managing the spread and preventing more unnecessary deaths, officials are implementing mandates for vaccinations in workplaces and masking in schools.
They’re fighting against daily case, hospitalization and death rates that jumped after the early summer as the highly contagious Delta variant became dominant.

Carol graduated from Riverside White Cross School of Nursing in Columbus, Ohio and received her diploma as a registered nurse. She attended Bowling Green State University where she received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in History and Literature. She attended the University of Toledo, College of Nursing, and received a Master’s of Nursing Science Degree as an Educator.

She has traveled extensively, is a photographer, and writes on medical issues. Carol has three children RJ, Katherine, and Stephen – one daughter-in-law; Katie – two granddaughters; Isabella Marianna and Zoe Olivia – and one grandson, Alexander Paul. She also shares her life with husband Gordon Duff, many cats, and two rescue pups.

  1. FDA advisory panel just slammed the brakes on Biden’s big booster roll out. Something about safety and efficacy concerns with limited overall benefit? Is somebody out there actually doing their job? Pfizer outraged. “But, Joe promised us another contract bump. No fair.!” Let’s stick to the original game plan, eh.

  2. The most significant historical event ever in the USA. A perfect storm of a microscopic army inflicted on us by an unknown enemy. With all that, 100% transparency becomes impossible. We are left to choose where we place our faith and hope that subsequent evidence (if it ever matetializes) will prove it was the best choice. Many of those who perished had few choices or even understood them. That is no longer the case. But, like all wars, the history will be written by the survivors. Choosing to ignore this viral onslaught is probably not the best course. Trust your heart’s decision and hope for the best.

  3. The Rapture-me-outta-here folks think this is God’s will, Carol. That’s why they aren’t being vaccinated and put up a big fuss about wearing masks. In their faith-based understanding of reality, may the COVID-19 bioweapon IS the Rapture. I wouldn’t put it past their crazy Christian Zionist pastors to suggest that.

    • Tommy, If those who do not get the vaccine because they think it is god’s will that they sicken, feel like they are suffocating, and participate in a pretty horrible death scenario……They should find another god. Their god hates them.

    • You have to remember, Carol, US Christian Zionism is an apocalyptic death cult. They pray for an attack on Iran that will trigger the so-called Armageddon. That makes hundreds of thousands of COVID-19 deaths just a drop in the bucket to them.
