Covid-19: Biden calls 500,000 death toll a ‘heartbreaking milestone’

by Kunle Awosiyan

President Joe Biden has addressed the nation as the US marks 500,000 deaths from Covid-19, the highest toll of any country in the world.

He said as a nation, America cannot accept such a cruel fate and must resist becoming numb to the sorrow.

The president and vice-president, and their spouses, then observed a moment of silence outside the White House during a candle-lighting ceremony.

More than 28.1 million Americans have been infected which is another global record.
