The most important word on the front page of the Sunday New York Times is “innumerable.” The publication has published a thousand names of people who died from COVID-19.

To print these names, the newspaper gave the front page and three inside pages. There are no photos, news articles, advertisements or anything else on them – just a list of names with the headline: “The number of deaths in the U.S. is approaching 100 thousand, incalculable losses”.

Many experts say that the number of deaths in the Covid-19 is much higher than the official figure because many died at home or were not counted for various reasons. Either way, the editors and reporters of The Times have decided to sum up the sad results of the pandemic.

“1000 people here represent only 1% of the total. “But nobody is just a figure. – According to the journalists’ statement. Among the dead are 87-year-old Lila Fenwick, the first African-American woman to graduate from Harvard Law School, 91-year-old Romy Cohn, who saved 56 Jewish families from the Nazis, 5-year-old Skylar Garber from Michigan and many others.
