The New York Times Allocated the front page of the newspaper names of the COVID-19 victims in the U.S.

The American New York Times on Sunday May 24 dedicated the front page to coronavirus victims by publishing a surname list of those killed in the United States. This was reported on the website of the publication.

The printed version of the publication was published under the heading: “The number of victims is approaching 100 thousand, uncountable losses,” which is accompanied by a brief obituary. “The list does not just name, it is us,” the subheading of the publication says.

The authors of the article note that the influence of coronavirus on the USA cannot be measured by numbers.

“As the country approaches a gloomy 100,000 deaths due to the virus, the New York Times examined obituaries and reports of human deaths. These thousand people are only one percent of the list of the dead, ” the publication says.

Journalists also mentioned in the article the age, place of residence, and a brief description or occupation of thousands of coronavirus patients who died. The list published on the front page continues in the newspaper on page 22.

“I would like people to look back after 100 years to understand what losses we have suffered,” said Mark Lacy, one of the editors of The New York Times.

“We knew that we would approach this mark [of 100 thousand people]. We understood that there should be a way to take this number into account, ” said Simon Landon, assistant editor of the graphic department.

May 22, US President Donald Trump ordered for three days to lower the flags on all federal buildings and national monuments in memory of Americans who died of coronavirus.

According to the latest data from Johns Hopkins University, more than 1.6 million cases of coronavirus infections have been detected in the United States — more than in any other country. Since the start of the pandemic, 97,087 people have died in the United States.
