500,000 deaths in the US

Data and Metrics

Today we take a moment to remember each and every person who died of COVID-19 in the last 11 months — 500,000 deaths in the US as of yesterday.

Large numbers are hard to put into context. In our absence of words to capture the trauma and tragedy of this massive societal and personal loss, this National Geographic piece helps to contextualize the magnitude of 500,000 deaths.

With so much love today and always,
Those Nerdy Girls
