At least 100,276 people have died from Covid-19 in the US, according to Johns Hopkins University’s tally of cases.

That’s almost twice the number of Americans lost during the entire Vietnam War.

No one knew how bad the coronavirus pandemic would get when the first known virus-related death happened on February 6. But since then, an average of nearly 900 Americans have died every day from Covid-19.

The victims have represented some of the best of humanity:

An ER doctor who risked his life trying to save others.
A grandmother and refugee who worked tirelessly to provide a better life for her children.
A 36-year-old principal who helped troubled students grow produce for the needy.
A Holocaust survivor who saved dozens of families from genocide.
