In the United States, 500,000 people died of coronary heart disease last night (Tuesday). The White House held a special ceremony attended by President Joe Biden and his deputy, at which the President asked the nation to observe a minute of silence in memory of the dead.

Biden addressed the people of the United States: “As a nation, we must not accept such a cruel fate. We must not be indifferent to sorrow. We lost extraordinary people because of the plague. To the loved ones left behind – I know how it feels. I know how it feels when you hold their hands and look into their eyes in their last moments. “

“We will get through this, I promise you,” the US president added, “This nation will smile again, we will know more happy days.”

Dr. Anthony Pauchi, Biden’s senior adviser on the war in Corona, implicitly blamed the Trump administration and said: “A political split has contributed to the fact that the country has reached that huge number.

“A rich country like the United States should in no way have become the country where the most people have died as a result of the virus.” On the vaccines, he said: “They can help us develop herd immunity against serious illness or death.”

Dr Pauchi added: “If you look at history we are worse than almost any other country – and we are a rich, and highly developed country. It is terrible. It’s historic. We have not seen anything close to it for more than 100 years, since the Spanish influence in 1918. “
