Joe Biden heartbroken over 500,000 COVID-19 death toll

Feb 23 2021 Share

US COVID deaths have surpassed the 500,000 threshold, with infections standing at 28.1 million, way above any other country. Warning against getting used to the misery this brings, President Joe Biden, along with the vice-president and family, held a respectful moment of silence.

Flags were lowered to half-mast for five days to commemorate the ‘heartbroken milestone’. Calling the losses ‘extraordinary’ people, he related the nation’s losses with his own familial experiences with tragedy.

With National Cathedral bells tolling 500 times, once for every 1000 Americans lost, Biden diverges from his predecessor Donald Trump in bringing the required attention to the pandemic and its hefty price.

After Gozitan Teachers and LSEs were informed to travel to Malta to receive their COVID vaccine, PN deputies Chris Said and Kevin Cutajar take to Facebook to condemn the decision.

Gozitans expressed their worries over the initial message as travelling between the islands could in fact raise their chances of contracting the virus.

Spokespersons who addressed the issue stated that those not vulnerable should also receive their vaccination in Gozo as the necessary facilities are available there.
