The United States House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi has said that the hearts of all Americans break for the 400,000 who have died from the Coronavirus, an unfathomable human toll almost beyond comprehension.

In a statement issued by Speaker Pelosi on Tuesday, she said As one country, America pray for all lost to this vicious virus: children, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers and friends.

Speaker Pelosi said, ” It is our hope that tonight’s National Memorial and Lighting Ceremony may be a comfort to all affected. “Tomorrow, when President-elect Biden is sworn in, the American people can have confidence that ‘help is on the way”. “As we mourn this devastating milestone, we must come together to move past the failed Trump response to crush the virus and deliver robust, real relief now”, she said.

Adding that Biden-Harris emergency coronavirus relief package delivers the big, bold and urgent action that Congressional Democrats have been fighting for including swift and equitable distribution of the vaccine. “To crush the virus, bigger direct payment checks, support for state and local government, extended unemployment insurance, and more aid for small businesses, renters and others who are struggling”, she said.

Meanwhile, America’s deaths to COVID-19 has been the highest in the world with over 400,000 and more than 24 millions cases according to report from America Centre for Disease Control CDC.
