The United States, the country hit by the coronavirus pandemic, crossed 800,000 Covid-19 deaths on Tuesday, a tracker maintained by Johns Hopkins University showed.
“On this day, we would remember that 800,000 loved ones didn’t make it this far: a lost father or grandfather, mother or grandmother, a friend, a known face in the neighborhood,” Schumer stated in a statement.
“All of us know of someone how this disease has taken away.”
Around 450,000 deaths occurred in 2021, despite highly effective vaccines first authorized in December 2020 and available by springtime.
The most majority of the deaths have been among the unvaccinated.
According to official information, the risk of dying from Covid-19 was 14 times higher among people who had not been fully vaccinated than those who had, in September, the latest month analyzed.
Vaccinations rose during the fourth wave of the disease, driven by the Delta variant. More than 60 percent of the country’s 332 million people are now fully vaccinated — though the United States still lags behind other wealthy nations.
