            The article: “Numb’ and ‘Heartbroken,’ the U.S. Confronts Record Virus Deaths” by Sarah Mervosh, Giulia McDonnell Nieto del Rio, and Neil MacFarquhar and dated December 2020 highlights that Covid-19 is causing more than 3000 deaths in a day. The disease has claimed the life of Ms. Blancas, a daughter of an immigrant causing devastation to her family. The news reporters relate the increase in death record in December as compared with April. In their words, “In a single day, the country, numbed and divided, lost more Americans to the coronavirus than were killed in the Sept. 11 terror attacks or the attack on Pearl Harbor.” The report suggests that more deaths are likely to be reported out of the Thanksgiving gatherings. The report states weekly fatalities and hospitalization of new cases have soared.
