WASHINGTON (Worthy News) – U.S. President Joe Biden said Thursday there are “one million empty chairs” as he marked the 1 million recorded American deaths in the coronavirus outbreak.

“One million empty chairs around the dinner table. Each an irreplaceable loss,” he stressed in a statement. “Each leaving behind a family, a community, and a nation forever changed because of this pandemic.”

Most people who died were over the age of 65, often with underlying health conditions, statistics showed.

Yet Biden stressed the whole nation should “not grow numb to such sorrow. To heal, we must remember. We must remain vigilant against this pandemic and do everything we can to save as many lives as possible.”

Though critics question his policies, Biden said saving lives involves “more testing, vaccines, and treatments than ever before.”

The president ordered flags at the White House and other public buildings to fly at half-staff.

Johns Hopkins University reported 999,053 U.S. COVID-19 deaths as of Thursday morning.
