The number of KOVID-19 victims in the United States exceeds 1 million, according to a Reuters census, according to which the country has exceeded the once unthinkable limit about two years after the first cases.

The passing of the symbolic figure is a stark reminder of the staggering losses caused by the pandemic, at a time when the threat of the virus is fading in the minds of many people.

The death toll is about 1 in 327 Americans and is more than the total population of cities such as San Francisco or Seattle, informs BTA.

On March 11, 2020, when the World Health Organization declared KOVID-19 a global pandemic, the virus had killed 36 people in the United States.

In the months that followed, the contagion spread at an astonishing rate, especially in densely populated areas such as New York City, reaching virtually every point on the planet.

The number of confirmed victims of the pandemic worldwide is 6.7 million people.

According to the WHO, their true number is probably closer to 15 million.

Most of the victims of KOVID-19 were adults or with weakened immune systems, but healthy young people were not spared.

The disease has killed more than 1,000 children in the United States, and about 213,000 children have lost at least one parent, according to Reuters.

With the weakening of the KOVID-19 threat following the Omicron wave in the winter, many Americans dropped their masks and returned to their offices.

Restaurants and bars are full again, and public attention has shifted to inflation and economic problems.

But researchers are already working on the next booster dose while the virus continues to mutate.
