The United States of America yesterday surpassed one million COVID-19 deaths, according to data compiled by the American broadcast television network, NBC News.

The number – equivalent to the population of San Jose, California, the 10th largest city in the US – was reached at stunning speed, 27 months after the country confirmed its first case of the virus.

“Each of those people touched hundreds of other people. It’s an exponential number of other people that are walking around with a small hole in their heart,” said Diana Ordonez, whose husband, Juan Ordonez, died in April 2020 at age 40.

While deaths from COVID-19 have slowed in recent weeks, about 360 people have still been dying every day.

According to World Health Organisation, COVID-19 cases and deaths continue to decline but omicron sub-variants are driving an increase in the Americas and Africa.
