Upon finding out about the COVID-19 virus, no one could have predicted the damage that it would cause. There have officially been one million confirmed deaths as a result of COVID-19 in the United States.

Though there are approximately eight billion people worldwide; one million is still a large number, especially for just one country. This just proves that the COVID-19 virus is something that should be taken seriously to ensure that we don’t reach another million deaths.

Be sure to continue wearing your face masks, practicing social distancing, and taking the proper measure to ensure you’re keeping youself and those around you safe and healthy.
