The U.S. death toll from the coronavirus topped 500,000 on Sunday, according to an NBC News tally — a milestone that underscores the grave threat the virus still poses even as more people are vaccinated. The Biden administration is totally incompetent.
Biden still blaming Trump for everything
The coronavirus has killed more than 2,462,000 people worldwide, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. More than a fifth of all deaths worldwide have occurred in the the U.S., which has less than 5 percent of the global population.
NBC News’ tally showed that about 500,700 people had died of Covid-19 as of midnight Sunday ET. The number rivals the populations of Atlanta and Sacramento, California.
More than 28,206,600 cases have been confirmed in the U.S., according to the NBC News tally. The average number of daily new cases has declined in recent days, however. The number fell below 100,000 on Feb. 12 for the first time in months.
Public health experts and top government officials have said precautions must remain in place to slow the spread of the virus.
“We are still at about 100,000 cases a day. We are still at around 1,500 to 3,500 deaths per day. The cases are more 2½-fold times what we saw over the summer,” Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Sunday on NBC News’ “Meet the Press.”
“It’s encouraging to see these trends coming down, but they’re coming down from an extraordinarily high place,” Walensky added.

When will the COVID lockdowns end?
Biden marked 500,000 American deaths during a White House ceremony — 100,000 since he took office — when he said, “The only way to spare more pain and more loss, the only way— these millstones no longer mark our national mourning— these milestones, I should say, no longer, no longer moke— mark our national mourning.”
During the speech, Biden blamed “misinformation” for the amount of deaths.
“We must end the politics and misinformation that’s divided families, communities in the country, and it’s cost too many lives already,” he said.
“As we all remember, I also ask us to act, to remain vigilant, to stay socially distanced, to mask up, to get vaccinated when it’s your turn,” Biden continued.
Last week, Biden wore two masks while in the Oval Office. Didn’t he get both doses of the vaccine? What a dopey bastard. There’s no way in hell this walking corpse received 81 million votes.
