"800,000 Americans' Lives Lost to COVID-19"

NBC News interviewed Dr. Michael Rodriguez, UCLA Fielding School of Public Health professor of community health sciences, about the milestone of 800,000 confirmed COVID-related deaths in the United States over the past two years

Monday, December 13, 2021

The United States passed another grim COVID-19 milestone Monday, as more than 800,000 Americans have now died from the virus that's plagued the country for nearly two years.

There have been at least 800,156 confirmed deaths traced to the coronavirus, according to a rolling tally by NBC News.

That's more than in any other nation, and more than the population of Boston, Washington, D.C., or Seattle.
