President Biden called on American vaccine workers to roll their arms to shoot COVIDs on Saturday as they marked what they called a “tragic event”: 700,000 deaths related to the coronavirus.
“We should not be so sad,” Biden said in a statement issued by the White House. “We remember all those who have lost their lives to this disease and we pray for their loved ones who are still losing part of their lives.”
He confirmed that “we have made remarkable progress in our fight against COVID-19 over the past eight months due to vaccinations.”
About 300,000 deaths have died before COVID-19 immunization was introduced before December 2020. But another 400 deaths have been added to the worst in the last ten months – leading to an increase in the average monthly mortality rate in recent months.
However, Biden said, “the astounding death toll is another reminder of the importance of vaccinations.”
“If you haven’t already, please inject,” Biden pleaded. “It can save your life and the lives of those you love.”
